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 publically 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.

According to Fred Garcia, P.E., Director of Communications for the Harris County Flood Control District, in a letter dated August, 2009,
“We recommend that all Harris County residents have flood insurance. Even if your home is not in a mapped flood plain and even if it is elevated to current standards above the 100 year flood plain. In a sense, all of Harris County is in a flood plain, and all of us are at risk of flooding to varying degrees. If you’re not in a mapped flood plain, it doesn’t mean you don’t need flood insurance, it means you get cheaper flood insurance!"
