District Trail Rehabilitation Project

The MUD 364 Board is excited to announce an upcoming trail rehabilitation project!

The asphalt trail system was built in 2010 and is one of the community’s greatest assets. Sections of the trail have deteriorated over time and are now in need of significant repair. The District has engaged landscape architectural firm, Halff Associates, Inc., to design a new trail masterplan for MUD 364’s trails. Preliminary designs include replacing the asphalt trail with concrete and adding landscaping, trees, interpretative signage, benches, water fountains, and other features along the trail.

The total cost for all phases of the project is estimated to be $2.3 million, which will be paid out of the district’s general fund. Final costs are subject to change depending on the final design of the project and cost of construction and materials, among other factors.

Currently, we expect construction to begin in February 2024 be completed by the fall of 2024.

The Board will provide further updates and information here as the project proceeds!

NHCRWA Fee Decrease

At its January 9, 2023, Regular Board Meeting, the Board of Directors of the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) voted to reduce surface water rates and groundwater pumpage fees. These fees are charged to all MUD districts in the NHCRWA jurisdiction. The surface water/pumpage fees are passed on to all residents via a line item on the monthly water bill. The NHCRWA reduced surface water rates from $5.05 to $4.55 per 1,000 gallons and groundwater pumpage fees from 4.60 to $4.10 per 1,000 gallons.

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.
