THE FINAL GO-AHEAD: Harris County Commissioners Court  approved a $105M project to renovate the Astrodome. The approval comes more than four years after voters rejected a multi-million bond proposal that would have paid for massive renovations to the Eighth Wonder of the World. #Astrodome #Houston #HTown #cityofhouston #houstontx


HOUSTON - Intense, sustained, rainfall over the weekend resulted in the spill of domestic wastewater at several locations. The areas potentially affected by the spill include:

200 Travis Street, near the University of Houston Downtown
700 Washington Avenue @ 100 Milam Street

Houston Public Works is closely monitoring the situations. As of yesterday, February 10, at 8:00 p.m., the estimated volume of released wastewater at each location is greater than 120,000 gallons. Appropriate local governmental officials and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) have been notified. 
TCEQ requires this mandatory notification and the information below:
Persons using private drinking water supply wells located within ½-mile of the spill site or within the potentially affected area should use only water that has been distilled or boiled at a rolling boil for at least one minute for all personal uses including drinking, cooking, bathing, and tooth brushing.

Individuals with private water wells should have their well water tested and disinfected, if necessary, prior to discontinuing distillation or boiling.

Persons who purchase water from a public water supply may contact their water supply distributor to determine if the water is safe for personal use. 
The public should avoid contact with waste material, soil, or water in the area potentially affected by the spill. Do not swim in affected areas. 
If the public comes into contact with waste material, soil, or water potentially affected by the spill, they should bathe and wash clothes thoroughly as soon as possible.

This is why you shouldn't drive during a winter storm. @imkevinquinn was in the middle of a frozen highway Tuesday showing everyone the conditions on the roads. 
Police Chief Acevedo said the city had more than 300 crashes in just 9 hours.
