Original (4/15/2020):
As Harris County Municipal Utility District 249 (HCMUD 249) continues to make every effort possible to keep residents monthly water rates as low as possible, the district wanted to notify residents as to the increase in the water fees imposed by the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA). The rate change went into effect April 1st, 2020, and residents will see it reflected in bills later in the month once meters are read.

The NHCRWA groundwater rate fee was previously $3.97 ($3.85 + 3% district water accountability offset) per thousand gallons of used water to $4.38 (4.25 + 3%) per thousand gallons of used water.

As always, HCMUD 249 residents are strongly encouraged to conserve water and visit the links below for more information regarding their water rates and general information regarding the NHCRWA.
