Towne Lake Fall Festival

The Towne Lake Fall Festival held on October 28, 2023 was a huge success!

The residents enjoyed food, games, a pumpkin patch and all the candy you could imagine! The West Harris County Regional Water Authority’s Mobile Teaching Lab was a wonderful addition to the day’s festivities. Residents learned about stormwater pollution, F.O.G. – fats, oils and grease, Patty Potty – No Wipes in the Pipes, and Scoop the Poop. The lab focused on the conversion to surface water, where water comes from and water conservation. Residents were able to take several items home with them including coloring books, sunglasses and of course candy!

Special thanks to Inframark, MUD 501’s Community Education chair, DeBra Edwards, and Bruno, a community canine, for making the day such a success!
