WCA Collection Cancelled for Monday

To all WCA Houston Area Customers and Employees,

Due to severe weather and flooding conditions in the greater Houston area, which are expected to continue throughout today and possibly longer, WCA will not be servicing waste collection pick-ups that are scheduled for today (Monday). Subject to further notice due to continued severe weather developments, Monday scheduled pick-ups for residential customers will be serviced on Thursday (April 21st). We regret any inconvenience caused by this event.

We will determine whether we can safely provide collection services to WCA customers who are scheduled for Tuesday pick-up once we have a better picture of weather and road conditions for tomorrow. Another announcement regarding Tuesday service will be made at the earliest opportunity.

The District’s Operator, EDP, started emergency operations this at about 4:00 a.m. this morning, Monday, April 18. The District has received several calls from customers about street flooding. EDP is patrolling the neighborhood to remove debris in storm sewers in addition to other emergency preparedness measures. Oyster Creek is high; therefore, the District activated the north storm water pump station. We have several lift stations with high levels and high flow rates from storm water infiltration.

We are addressing the situation and monitoring flows. The EDP call center will be emergency operation until it is safe for our neighborhood. Currently we have 7 field personnel out in the District working on emergency preparedness. The South pump station is ready for operation should it need to be turned on. Stay tuned for additional information as we have it. Keep in mind, our first priority is safety not posting information to the website, but we will post updates as we can to help inform the public throughout the day.
