Hurricanes and Water Systems

South Texas just officially welcomed our first hurricane of the season. Hurricane Hanna greeted South Texas with flooding, damaging winds, and power outages. Most people think hurricanes are very active in the summer months, but the most active month for hurricanes in the Atlantic is actually in September.

Though rain can be a relief in Texas too much of it can cause problems. If we look at the aftermath of what a Hurricane can leave in path, we can see flooding roads, fallen trees, and damaged structures. We have all seen the news showing what kind of destruction a tropical storm or a hurricane can cause. But what we don’t see is the damage it can do to our Water Systems.

After tropical storms and hurricanes have impacted your area, it is critical to complete an inspection to assess any damages that may have occurred. High winds can do damage to hatches, vent structures and air craft warning lights, and in some cases even be blown off.  Even the foundations of the storage tanks, like homes and buildings can be affected from severe rainfall and flash flooding. Without assessing the damages that can occur to your water tanks, you may be leaving openings that can allow birds, insects, and other pollutants to enter the tank.

As the hurricane season is just starting it is important to stay current with your TCEQ inspections. After disasters have occurred the most important necessities that people need is shelter, light, and WATER. By doing your inspections you can be sure your water system is prepared to provide your community with SAFE water.
