San Jacinto Coalition hears updates, waits for well report from Harris County Health Dept.

san jacinto river update
A LARGE CROWD of area residents listened for details on the water well tests, but were told it would be a few more weeks before the information was available.

HIGHLANDS – The San Jacinto River Coalition held their regular monthly meeting Tuesday night, with about 150 attending at the Community Center.

But instead of hearing information on the possible contamination in their well water, they had to wait a few more weeks, said Jackie Young. After attending a meeting with Harris County Public Health, she was unable to provide the definitive information that the audience asked for. They wanted a detailed quantitative report on dioxins, and other contaminants in their water.

100 wells have been tested by the county last month, and 71 of those received a letter advising them not to drink or cook their water.
