Where does our drinking water come from?
Deer Park gets surface water from Trinity River via Lake Livingston. This water is purchased from the City of Houston through the Coastal Water Authority. The City of Houston provides an assessment bimonthly of the water that comes from the reservoir, located north of Lynchburg Landing. The water quality assessment aids in planning the proper treatment of the water. Besides surface water, the City of Deer Park maintains three wells on standby. These wells could be used on an emergency basis if the raw water supply should be interrupted for any reason. These wells draw water from the Gulf Coast Aquifer.
