What is a MUD? A Municipal Utility District (MUD) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas authorized by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to provide water, sewage, and other services within the MUD boundaries.
How does a MUD work? The publicly elected Board of Directors manages and controls all of the affairs of the MUD subject to the continuing supervision of the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. The Board establishes policies in the interest of its residents and utility customers. A MUD may adopt and enforce all necessary charges, fees and taxes in order to provide district facilities and service.
The District is located in far west Harris County, approximately 35 miles west of the central downtown business district of the City of Houston. The District lies wholly within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston. All of the acreage in the District lies within the boundaries of the Katy Independent School District. Development within the District includes the parts of residential subdivision of Williamsburg Settlement, Sections 1 and 2 (collectively, 562 lots).
The District also provides water, sanitary sewer to serve non-residential customers located within the district boundaries.
