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. These rate cuts, the first cuts in the history of NHCRWA, will go into effect February 1, 2023.
