It’s Spring in Spring

Attention MUD 367 residents-

It’s Spring in Spring – Let’s conserve water, save money & get rid of waste!

EyeOnWater – Leak Detection App

Have you downloaded the EyeOnWater App available to MUD 367 residents?  This App allows each resident to see how much water is being used and can even alert you to possible leaks on your property.  Over 40% of MUD 367 residents have downloaded this free app and are taking advantage of its value.  You will need your water bill for initial set up, then proceed to the App Store and download EyeOnWater.  Make sure to activate “Leak Alerts” to be contacted if there is a continuous flow of water of 1 gallon or more over a 24-hour period.

Water My Yard – Water Conservation Program

Harris County MUD 367 recommends each resident in the district sign up for the “Water My Yard” program designed by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service under the direction of Dr. Guy Fipps.  This program was developed in partnership with water districts, local city entities and public utilities to conserve water and take the guess work out of maintaining a healthy lawn.

The “Water My Yard” program uses local weather data in MUD 367 to provide free weekly watering advice. This data is collected from an extensive network of weather stations and rain gauges, and, along with research-based understanding of plant water needs, allow experts to send customized weekly water advice for your specific lawn and irrigation system.

More information and creating your personalized account can be accessed through their direct link at:

Get Ready for Winter: How to Winterize Your Sprinkler System

Harris County MUD 367 Residents~

As temperatures begin to drop over the next few weeks, we may encounter possible freezing weather for short-term or longer-term periods. Winterizing your sprinkler system, primarily the above-ground Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB), could end up saving you money from repairing or replacing this item upon bursting after a hard freeze. The following video walks you through the process in a clear and concise step-by-step process.

NHCRWA Board Votes to Reduce Water Rates for the Second Time in 2023

At its regular Board meeting on September 11, 2023, the Board of Directors of the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) voted to reduce water rates. The Board reduced surface water rates from $4.55 to $4.05 per 1,000 gallons. This is the second time in eight months the Authority has made rate reductions, making a total of $1.00 per thousand gallons of usage, or approximately 20% and 22% rate cuts, respectively. The new rates will go into effect October 1, 2023.

This pass-through cost from NHCRWA is shown as “Regional Water Authority” on your MUD 367 water bill.

As an example, if your usage for the billing period 10/4/23 to 11/3/23 is 12,000 gallons, the RWA fee would be reduced from $54.60 to $48.60. MUD 367 water and sewer rates will remain the same.

To read more about this reduction, please go to the NHCRWA website:
