What is the best way to conserve water during these hot summer months?
Start by checking for leaking toilets, also make sure outside hoses are not leaking, and finally, be mindful of how much and how often your irrigation is running. To ensure the best possible water usage habits, download the free Eye on Water app and set it for leak alerts. Have your MUD 367 water bill handy to insert your account number.
Why does my sprinkler system seem to run all of the time?
It may be! Some systems have been known to create “ghost schedules” where more than one schedule is running consecutively. If you have installed the Eye on Water App, you can see how long your system is running and figure out if there is a problem. Also, MUD 367 has partnered with Rachio Smart Sprinkler Systems to provide a substantial discount for their product which attaches to your current sprinkler system and can determine how much water your landscape needs. It performs this task by tying into your home WiFi, has a great app interface with your phone, and is integrated into weather reports and soil saturation data.

What does the NHCRWA fee mean on my bill?
The North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) was created in 1999 by voters. This agency is responsible for constructing the infrastructure to comply with the Harris County-Galveston Subsidence District’s Regulatory Plan that requires a reduction in groundwater usage to no more than 20% of the total water demand by the year 2035. We are in year 21 out of this 35-year plan. The fee charged by NHCRWA has been increasing steadily over the last eight years. It is currently $5.05 per 1,000 gallons of water usage per month. Both MUD 367 and 383 only collect this fee for NHCRWA; neither MUD controls the fee nor tack additional fees onto it. All residents in the NHCRWA area are required to pay this monthly fee. The NHCRWA holds monthly meetings at their office location: 3648 Cypress Creek Parkway, Suite 110, Houston, 77068 on the first Monday of the month.
