Welcome to the website of the Galveston County Water Control and Improvement District No.1 (WCID#1) located in Dickinson, Texas. Watch this site for information about "The Water Company". If you need us for emergencies our 24 hour number is our main number, 281-337-1576. If you call that number, either our customer service staff or an on-call operator will contact the right members of our staff to help you.
We have changed our policy here at the District regarding the reconnection of services for non-payment. Effective July 28th of 2014, we will no longer complete the reconnection of water services, terminated for non-payment, after business hours. If your water is disconnected for non-payment, you will need to pay the full amount of your bill and any reconnection charges one (1) hour prior to the close of business each day in order to be reconnected on that day. So, if you are disconnected Monday thru Thursday you must pay your bill and fees before 4:30 pm to be reconnected the same day. On Friday, you must pay by 11:00 am to be reconnected on the same day. We regret that due to safety and audit concerns we will no longer offer this service.
Drought Info July 24, 2014
We have had some good news. The Brazos River Basin has received some much needed rain. The reservoirs that feed the Brazos are indeed up from the previous months and as such, our water supply from the river should be sufficient to get us through this summer. We will not likely be moving to Stage Two (2) of our Drought Contingency Plan this summer. Please continue to do your best to reduce your overall water usage. We will keep you informed about the status of our water supply in the Brazos River. Rain in the Brazos River Watershed is still so very much needed.
Our next Regular Board Meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 18, 2014 at 6:00 pm the Council Chambers in Dickinson City Hall, Dickinson, TX.
