IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING WASTEWATER SYSTEM IN SPRING VALLEY VILLAGE Attention Residents, On Monday, September 4, 2017, the City of Houston issued an alert about problems that it is having with two of its wastewater treatment plants in west Houston (West District and Turkey Creek), and the alert included Spring Valley Village’s zip code of 77055. It is important to note that the alert was not specific to Spring Valley Village. The 77055 zip code covers a large geographic area – much larger than the City limits of Spring Valley Village. Spring Valley Village residents can rest assured that there is no problem with our wastewater system. Public Works crews are checking each of the City’s four lift stations twice each day to ensure that the system remains in good shape. Those checks will go on until Houston's wastewater treatment plants are no longer having problems. Additionally, the City's lift stations will send out alerts to our Public Works crews in the event that there is anything wrong with the wastewater system. The City has not received any alerts from our lift stations. In the event that the City’s wastewater system has a problem that requires any kind of wastewater conservation by residents, we will notify residents as quickly as possible. Until then and regardless of any notices or alerts issued by the City of Houston, Spring Valley Village residents do not have to worry about our wastewater system.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING FEMA DISASTER APPLICANTS: FEMA Advises Disaster Applicants to Beware of Rumors, Misinformation, and Fraud Release date: August 31, 2017 WASHINGTON - The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is raising awareness that Hurricane Harvey disaster survivors, and their friends and family, must be alert for false rumors, scams, identity theft, and fraud. Although many Americans are working hard to help their neighbors now, during chaotic times, some will always try to take advantage of the most vulnerable. To dispel some of the false rumors circulating on the internet and social media, FEMA created a dedicated website to address some of the most common themes. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Visit https://www.fema.gov/hurricane-harvey-rumor-control to get the most accurate information from trusted sources. Here is how to protect yourself, or someone you care about, from disaster fraud: Federal and state workers do not ask for, or accept, money. FEMA staff will never charge applicants for disaster assistance, home inspections, or help filling out applications. Stay alert for false promises to speed up the insurance, disaster assistance, or building permit process. In person, always ask to see any FEMA employee ID badges. FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance teams may be in impacted communities providing information and assisting survivors with the registration process or their applicant files. A FEMA shirt or jacket is not proof of identity. All FEMA representatives, including our contracted inspectors, will have a laminated photo ID. All National Flood Insurance Program adjusters will have a NFIP Authorized Adjuster Card with their name and the types of claims they may adjust. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with anyone you encounter claiming to be an emergency management official, do not give out personal information, and contact local law enforcement. If you suspect fraud, contact the FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721 or report it to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov. More information on disaster-related fraud is available at the Texas Attorney General’s Office website at texasattorneygeneral.gov/cpd/disaster-scams or call -800-252-8011. In Louisiana, disaster-related fraud information is available on the State Attorney General’s Office website at http://www.agjefflandry.com or contact the National Center for Disaster Fraud’s hotline at 1-866-720-5721.
