Embracing Spring 2024 with HC MUD 501: Water Conservation, Community Events, and More!

As the flowers bloom and the temperatures rise, Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 501 (MUD 501) is excited to share a host of updates and initiatives for Spring 2024. From water conservation efforts to engaging community events, we are committed to making this season both sustainable and memorable for our residents.

Water Conservation Takes Center Stage

This spring, we encourage every resident to partake in our water conservation measures. With our new electronic smart meter system, you can monitor your water usage in near real-time, helping to prevent leaks and save on your water bill. Remember, efficient water use is not just beneficial for your wallet but is crucial for our community’s sustainability.

Upcoming Community Shred and E-Waste Event

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27, 2024! We’re hosting our annual community shred and e-waste recycling event at the Towne Lake Amphitheater. It’s a perfect opportunity to safely dispose of your sensitive documents and electronic waste. Details are available on our website, and we can’t wait to see you there.

Emergency Preparedness: Are You Ready?

As we approach hurricane season, MUD 501 wants to ensure that all our residents are prepared for any emergency. We’ve compiled a list of essential items for your emergency kit. From water and non-perishable food to a first aid kit and manual can opener, being prepared can significantly reduce the stress and impact of unexpected situations.

Community Engagement and Safety

Our recent Heritage safety event showcased the strength of our community through education and engagement. We discussed important topics such as gun safety, the use of golf carts, and crimes against the elderly, emphasizing our commitment to a safe and informed community.

Odor Management Success and Drought Contingency Plan Updates

We’re pleased to announce successful odor management at one of our wastewater treatment plants, improving the quality of life for our residents. Additionally, we’ve revised our Drought Contingency Plan, aligning with regional standards to ensure our community remains prepared and resilient in the face of drought conditions.
