HOUSTON – The City of Houston has decided to terminate its contract with Inframark, responsible for managing the Greater North East Houston Service Area system, including the Kingwood Central Wastewater Treatment Facility. This decision comes after a two-month investigation revealed Inframark’s breach of contract with the City.
To better serve Kingwood residents, Houston Public Works will assume control of water treatment facilities in the area, in line with their successful management of facilities throughout the city. The termination of the contract with Inframark will take effect on Friday, March 31, 2023.
Houston Public Works and Inframark will collaborate to ensure a seamless transition to city-led management of the Greater North East Houston Service Area system.
Carol Haddock, Houston Public Works Director, stated, “We are committed to providing the highest quality water services to Houstonians and believe this is the best path forward for Houston water treatment operations.”
