Houston Water Quality: Then & Now
When early settlers first arrived in Houston, they relied on a variety of water sources. “Pure, cold, and wholesome water” from Beauchamp Springs was delivered to residents for 75 cents per 30 gallons. Cisterns captured rainwater for households, and shallow wells stored bayou water in barrels.
As the city grew, Houston water sources could not keep up with demand. After the City Market Fire of 1878, Houston City Council sought new sources and built a water works facility that pumped from the Buffalo Bayou. Then, in 1887, a resident drilled an artesian well and accidentally discovered the third largest underground reservoir in the country—a seemingly endless supply of pure water only 180 feet underneath the city.
In emergency situations, Houston would still pump water from Buffalo Bayou to sustain enough water pressure to fight fires. Residents began to suspect something was off, nicknaming Houston tap water; “tar water.” It wasn’t until 1906 that Houston restored confidence by drilling new wells instead of pumping from Buffalo Bayou.
After WWII, Houston city officials developed longer-range solutions from surface water sources. In 1953, city engineers constructed a dam across the San Jacinto River to create Lake Houston. The city also holds a percentage of the water rights to Lake Livingston (constructed in 1969) and Lake Conroe (constructed in 1973).
Today, Houston residents receive their drinking water from 3 water purification plants and 40 ground water plants. 16 additional groundwater plants provide for the remaining 5 Houston Water Systems. The city treats the water according to federal and state standards to remove harmful contaminants. However, open surface water reservoirs may be open to urban and agricultural runoff, which leads to chemical contaminants, inorganic and organic particles, bacteria, and low levels of arsenic, according to the recent Houston Water Quality report.
