The Surface Water Supply Project is a 39-mile-long cathodically-protected welded steel 8-foot-diameter water pipeline and two large pump stations that will be constructed by the West Harris County Regional Water Authority in partnership with the North Fort Bend Water Authority. The pipeline will supply surface water from Lake Houston, via the City of Houston's Northeast Water Purification Plant, to west Harris and north Fort Bend counties to facilitate compliance with the regulatory plans of the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District and Fort Bend Subsidence District, respectively. Construction of the Surface Water Supply Project is currently anticipated to begin in late 2018. More information about the project is available at www.surfacewatersupplyproject.com.
