Yes, each year you will be required to update your registration. A recent photo should be provided annually to help identify your child or dependent adult. In addition, the registry should be updated due to a change in address, phone number, emergency contact or the purchase of a new vehicle, to name a few.
If the individual goes missing and is reported by the parent or guardian, information about physical appearance, the most likely places where he or she would go to, as well as triggers, stimulants, and de-escalation techniques will be available to every police officer in the area who is looking for the missing person. If the individual has not been reported and is incapable of effectively communicating his/her name to an officer, officers may use the individual's physical descriptors to search applicable registry photos, allowing officers to make a more timely identification.
An individual may also be registered if at least one parent or guardian lives in League City or if the individual attends any school, day care, or assisted living in League City.
Although our agency will promote this program throughout the year, the renewals are the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian. It is recommended that you renew the registration during the month of the registrant’s birthday.
There is no guarantee with this registry of positive outcome. What the registry allows is the ability for patrol officers to access necessary information faster to begin searching. Also, if an officer comes across a "wandering" child or adult who is unable to communicate, the officer can have the database queried for persons on the registry living in the area. What is important to stress is that simply having a person registered with the registry is not going to change police responses in every instance involving an individual with a mental or intellectual disability. Police will act according to procedure and depending on circumstances.

No. Recycling will not be picked up in any container other than the 48-gallon, wheeled, topped cart, or in a clear plastic recycle bag that can be purchased at a grocery, hardware, or discount store retailer like Walmart.
View a list of all acceptable recyclable items. No, it is not necessary to remove bottle caps for bottles to be recycled.
Not at all. There is no need to sort or separate your recyclables. If you need to bag them for items that will not fit in your container please do so in clear or clear blue bags only and place them with your bin or on top of your bin.
That depends on the complex in which you reside. If your complex has recycling containers out we encourage you to take advantage of them. While we do not provide bins to apartment residents we do urge you to utilize the city's recycling center at 1535 Dickinson Avenue. The center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for recycling drop off.
The simple answer is no. All recycling should be placed in the 48 gallon bins and/or bagged in clear plastic bags. Polycarts, even if marked with recycling symbols, will not be emptied by AmeriWaste.
The League City Water Production Department is implementing a common utility maintenance procedure called unidirectional flushing. It involves opening specifically-selected fire hydrants and closing specifically selected valves under controlled conditions to scour the inner surface of water distribution pipes.
The scouring process helps to remove corrosion scale and sediment that accumulate naturally over time. If otherwise left in place, these deposits could degrade water quality and restrict pipeline carrying capacity.
The city is continuing the UDF program in certain areas of town in the upcoming months. Specific areas for flushing will be posted on the city website. Flushing will normally occur between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
Though not intentional, this happens from time-to-time during the flushing program.
During flushing, certain valves are closed to provide control over the direction of flow. It is likely that a valve closure resulted in loss of supply to your block. The crew will be sent to your block immediately to investigate and identify which valves may be closed and need to be re-opened.
No, each residence and business is individually metered at the service connection to determine consumption. Your utility bill is based on your specific meter readings.
The color is due to the presence of solids that are scoured from the surface of the pipes. These may include sand, sediment, iron (rust), and manganese, all of which are naturally-occurring and common to virtually every water system. At the levels that cause mild discoloration, these solids are not harmful; although they may impart an undesirable taste to the water.
Customers are advised to fully open their cold water faucets in their kitchen and bathroom to flush this water out of their service piping and plumbing lines. In most cases, the water should begin to run clear again within a minute. If it does not clear, please let us know and we will have a crew sent to your house to investigate further.
Yes, water production staff has maintained compliance with all state and federal drinking water quality standards. We perform frequent quality assurance / quality control monitoring throughout the system to ensure the safety and aesthetic quality of your water.
Each year, water production staff prepares the consumer confidence report for all our customers. This report summarizes the results of testing and provides a comparison to regulatory standards. We are performing flushing as a proactive measure to further enhance water quality and help ensure continued compliance.
League City Water Production strongly values, encourages, and practices water conservation measures. In developing the flushing program, we considered the impact of water use and weighed it against the known benefits of flushing. While a fair amount of water is used and is necessary to create an effective scour, we use a flushing practice called unidirectional flushing that is specifically designed to reduce overall water usage.
Because water mains are designed to handle fire flow, which may be several times larger than domestic or commercial water flow, the velocity of flow (or rate that water flows through pipes) in most mains is normally fairly low. Due to this, solids may settle on the bottom of the pipes. The problem may be more significant where there are dead-end pipes or areas of low water use.
Over time, these deposits reduce the “carrying capacity” of the pipe. They can also be a source of color, odor, and taste problems in the water if the deposits are stirred up by increases in the flow. Flushing the pipes at high velocities will normally remove most of the settled substances and discolored or stale water.
During the actual flushing process, water customers may experience some disturbance in their usual water service such as a short-term decrease in water pressure or the appearance of “brown water.” Although the water should not pose a health risk, it is best to avoid drinking the water until it runs clear from the tap.
Avoid washing clothes while flushing is happening in your area and don’t wash if there is a brown tint to the water. Plan ahead and do your laundry over the weekend to avoid the possibility of having stained clothes. If you inadvertently have washed your clothes in “brown or discolored water,” do not use bleach. This will set the stains in your laundry.
Don’t prepare baby food or formula if the water is discolored. Use bottled water or pre-prepared food and formula. You can also boil the water for one minute to ensure safety.
It’s often a good idea to use water stored in the refrigerator to drink, even when the flushing program is over. This a good habit to get into in the case of an emergency.
Any questions or concerns you may have can be directed to Mike Moreno, water quality supervisor, at 281-554-1042. You may also call our main office at 281-554-1041.
The Water Production Department monitors 10 water pump stations, 8 groundwater wells and 4 elevated towers throughout the city to ensure water quality and adequate water pressure is provided for public health, daily needs, and emergency needs such as fire fighting. Our operators perform daily water quality analysis at each pump station as well as state-required bacteriological testing at residences throughout the city.
Please call us! We will speak to you about your problem and get your address and contact information. Then, we’ll send an operator to your location where he will determine the best solution. Most often, by flushing the main line on your street, your taste and odor problem should be eliminated.

Did I or do I have any toilets that run or “hang up”; TO CHECK TOILETS: add food coloring to the tank and wait about 30 minutes and then check the bowl. If the bowl has the coloring, that would indicate a toilet leak.
Did I have any dripping faucets inside or out; or did I have any plumbing problems?
Did I have company that stayed a few days?
Did I water the yard, flowers, landscaping?
Am I showering more due to the summer heat?
Am I having to add water to the pool to keep it at a certain level?
Does the triangle, (which is the leak detector), on the face of my water meter, move when I don’t have water running in the house? If yes, that would indicate a leak.

A leaky toilet can waste as much as 200 gallons of water a day. A common reason toilets leak is that the toilet flapper has become worm and no longer seals closed once the toilet has filled.
A full bathtub requires about 70 gallons of water, while taking a five-minute shower under a low-flow shower head uses 10 to 25 gallons. Don’t run water down the drain while it heats up.
Inside the home, water use is evenly distributed among appliances, but nearly 30% is flushed down the toilet. A typical household of four uses 400 gallons of water per day. Clothes washing accounts for 26%, followed by showers at 20% and faucets (washing dishes, brushing teeth, etc.) is at 19%.
If you have a pool, keep the water level low to minimize splashing, and use a cover to slow evaporation. An average-sized pool can lose about 1,000 gallons of water per month if left uncovered.
Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation or micro-irrigation, is an irrigation method which saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters.
Water utilities use a variety of well-tested and reliable treatment processes to recycle / reclaim water. Utilities generally describe the various stages of treatment rather than the technologies utilized when referring to water quality, as there are multiple treatment techniques for achieving essentially the same result.
Generally speaking, the four core stages of treatment are primary treatment, secondary treatment, tertiary or advanced treatment, and disinfection. The number of treatment steps will vary based on how the water will be used. Most recycled water, however, will undergo some form of disinfection.
Reclaimed water is highly engineered for safety and reliability so that the quality of reclaimed water is more predictable than many existing surface and groundwater sources. Reclaimed water is considered safe when appropriately used.
Although reclaimed water is of very high quality, it is not used directly for drinking water in the United States. Reclaimed water planned for use in recharging our aquifers or augmenting our surface water receives adequate and reliable treatment before mixing with naturally occurring water and undergoing natural restoration processes. Some of this water eventually becomes part of our drinking water supplies.
Never! To avoid contamination of potable water, Texas law strictly prohibits interconnection between reclaimed water and potable water systems relating to general requirements for the production, conveyance, and use of reclaimed water. All exposed reclaimed water piping, hose bibs, and faucets are required to be painted purple, have clearly marked signs in English and Spanish, and where possible have horizontal separation of at least nine feet from any potable water piping.
As new supplies of fresh water become scarcer and more expensive to develop, the value of water reuse programs continues to grow. Once the initial costs for capital facilities and distribution systems are met, the long-term results include substantial environmental and financial savings. Consumers can support water reuse programs in their communities when appropriate and contact their local wastewater treatment facilities for more information.
Reclaimed water is generally not treated to drinking water standards established by the USEPA. However, reclaimed water does undergo several levels of treatment and is required to meet the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality water quality standards. Adverse health effects are rare from direct external contact with the water, but are possible if large quantities of the water are ingested over an extended period of time.
