What is a Municipal Utility District?

A Municipal Utility District (MUD) is a local governmental entity organized for the purpose of providing safe drinking water and sanitary sewer service to the areas within its boundaries. Additionally, a MUD can exercise other typical governmental powers, including, but not limited to, drainage relief within its boundaries, the levy and collection of ad valorem taxes, issuing bonds with voter authorization, charge for authorized services, adopt and enforce rules and regulations to accomplish the purposes for which the MUD was created, develop and maintain certain public improvements such as parks and jogging trails, provide solid waste management services, and provide police protection services. However, not all MUDs provide all of these services. While the powers of a MUD may seem very broad, MUDs are one of the most highly regulated and controlled governmental entities in the State of Texas. The powers of a MUD are limited to those expressly provided for in the Texas Water Code and the Texas Constitution and there is significant oversight provided by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

Freeze Warning- December, 2022

Municipal Operations & Consulting, Inc. (MOC) staff will be mobilized and standing by to deal with water main breaks and water plant issues. If you experience a pipe freeze on your side of your water meter, outside your home, MOC can only turn your water off at the meter. If you have a pipe broken inside your home, you can isolate your private cut off which is usually located on the side of your home below your water spigot, or inside the garage. It’s a good idea to have the names of a couple of plumbers should you need them, as MOC does not repair homeowner private water lines.

Freeze Preparation Tips

  1. Wrap outdoor and garage pipes.
  2. Remove water hoses and wrap water spigot with towels and/or heat tape.
  3. Drain and turn off sprinkler system.
  4. Turn off water to your washer if it is in the garage.
  5. If you leave your house before a freeze, turn off the water at your private cut off valve and leave your heat on.

Protect your pipes when it freezes

  1. Open cabinets under sinks to let your house’s heat warm the pipes.
  2. If your pipes freeze, turn off the water at your private cut off valve. This prevents broken pipes from leaking into the house after they thaw.
  3. Let faucets drip from the cold and hot taps or run water through your indoor faucets before you go to sleep.

***Check your Insurance coverage. Flood insurance does not pay for damaged caused by a freeze.
