According to their website, The San Jacinto River Authority is responsible for the water that’s given to The Woodlands, Conroe and other areas north of the metro Houston area. Our friends at the SJRA were recently awarded the title for best tasting water in Texas!
The test is judged by clarity, color, taste and odor and then compared to others in the state. This first place ranking is a move up from last year where they placed third and now they will compete in the national contest this Summer.
According to Chron.com,
The treatment plant is part of SJRA’s effort to reduce groundwater usage to surface water usage. The SJRA finished construction of a pipeline in late 2015 as part of its $500 million Groundwater Reduction Plan that was put in place to ensure entities meet the Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District’s mandate to reduce groundwater consumption by 30 percent by Jan. 1, 2016.The project includes the surface-water treatment plant at the Lake Conroe dam, 55 miles of treated water transmission pipelines and piping, metering and blending facilities at each of the surface-water delivery points.
