The City of Houston Has 449 Water Mains Which are Broken, their Solution? Raise Your Taxes and Fine Constituents
There are over 449 water mains which are broken in the city of Houston, most of which have been just taped off and allowed to flow freely for months going unfixed. Yet for some reason the City leaders have chosen to ticket their constituents $2 thousand dollars just for watering their lawns on the wrong day while raising your taxes by 15%.
The city’s justification for the tax hike:
8.2% for inflation
1% population increase (illegal immigration)
6% infrastructure problems
Apparently Houston’s politicians idea of dealing with broken water mains, is just taping it off and letting the water run continuously. One might think that the City of Houston is trying to cause a water shortage or crisis…
What’s the cities solution to their incompetence? Fining you, habitually over-billing, claiming there’s a drought (which was manufactured), and creating restrictions on what day you can water your own lawn.
Let’s not forget about the whole boil water notice that the water department badly botched and failed to inform constituents in time. These are the types of problems that pop up in cities when affirmative action and cronyism take the wheel.
So ask yourself, why is it that the city’s infrastructure is failing so miserably when the city and county have both received billions in American Rescue Plan Act and COVID funding? Maybe these crooked politicians shouldn’t be handing out 6-figure salaries and rewarding consultants $100s of millions in tax payer dollars for “equity studies & COVID project management” in which the county and city have both appealed PIA’s concerning handing over the actual work product these consultants claim to be doing.
If you want to keep this charade going, don’t fight back for election integrity and allow these thieves to keep stealing from you. The city’s infrastructure is only falling apart and we are on the path to turning into a 3rd world country soon if we continue to allow these sociopaths to keep running our city and county into the ground.

Why is City of Houston targeting single family homes in their drought contingency plan? According to their report used to implement their drought plan single family homes accounted for 86% of their customers,used the LEAST amount of water and pay the most
Read this carefully, about water monitoring, cutting off services and having to pay a 20% surcharge for 12-months, after not complying. During stage 4 this goes into effect for single family homes, after 4K gallons have been used for a single family homes.
Here are a few reviews from yelp concerning how the city runs their water department.
