No Boil Water Notice in Effect

There is no boil water notice in effect for Harris County MUD 364 residents or businesses.  The City of Houston has issued a Boil Water Notice for their water system and other systems effected by the City’s issue. While local media (and social media) are reporting boil water notices for the City and some other Water Districts in our area, however these notices do not pertain to Harris County MUD 364 receivers, as the District maintains independent water production facilities. Again, Harris County MUD 364 is not currently under a Boil Water Notice.

In the event a Boil Water Notice needs to be issued for our community, notification will be provided. For immediate and up-to-date 24/7 information, you can always reach out to Municipal Operations & Consulting, Inc’s 24-hour Customer Service line at (281) 367-5511.

Leaks Can Run- But They Cannot Hide

Drip, Drip, Drip…Let’s Talk Leaks!

Guess what! National Fix A Leak Week is March 14-20th and we want to be sure you have the best resources to keep you informed of the little problems caused by water leaks. Awareness of what to look for and knowledge of how to fix any leak issues can go a long way in prevention and saving money. Leaks can run, but they can’t hide!



Did you know that simple faucet leaks amount to approximately 1 trillion gallons of water wasted each year? That’s huge! And so easily preventable! Not to mention, leaks are costly. Taking time each year to perform a preventative check, can help keep your check book in order.
When you are on the hunt for possible leaks, it is important to start with the data… Begin with your water bill, check your meter, and test your toilets. These will give you some clue as to the prevalence of a water leak in your home.

The EPA recommends the following checklist for tracking down a leak! Here are some of the best-known hiding places to start. Keep your ears open!
  • Bathroom
    • Toilets
    • Faucets
    • Showerheads
    • Under the sink
    • Don’t forget the tub!
  • Laundry Room
    • Check all of your hook-ups!
    • Look for pooling in the washer itself (it could indicate a source leak)
  • Kitchen
    • Check all appliances, such as the dishwasher and fridge. Many times, there are leaks behind them.
  • Basement and Garage
    • Sinks
    • Exposed pipes
    • Water Heaters
  • Outside
    • Spigots
    • Irrigation controls and sprinkler heads

Well, that all depends on your plumbing skills. Whether you choose to call in a professional or venture down the DIY path, below are a few steps everyone should take… just in case.

  1. Turn off the water line to the leaking location.
  2. Identify the primary source of the leak.
  3. Document any and all damage (date, time, photos, description, etc.).
  4. If necessary, call your insurance company.
  5. Call in the professionals or DIY to fix any damage caused by the leak.
  6. Look for any secondary impacts caused by the leak, such as mold or mildew.

It’s important that everyone learn the ins and outs of their plumbing system to avoid costly repairs or surprise damages. Not only does it help protect your home and family, but you also help reduce any wasteful impacts to our water sources.
Enjoy Fix a Leak Week! Best of luck to all you DIY’ers!

NHCRWA Fee Increase

The North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) will increase rates effective April 1, 2020. This fee is charged to all MUD districts in their jurisdiction. This water usage fee is passed on to the end consumer via a line item on the monthly water bill. Currently the NHCRWA rate is $3.85 per 1000 gallons of water used. The new rate will be $4.25 per 1000 gallons. This increase will impact your bill, depending on your water usage. The MUD 364 water rates will not increase, only the NHCRWA fee.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact NHCRWA. Please note that the MUD 364 Directors are residents of the District, and have to pay the same fees for water usage.

Your water bill will increase with the April billing cycle.
