Frequently Asked Questions
What is a MUD?
A Municipal Utility District (MUD) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas authorized by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to provide water, sewage, drainage, and other utility-related services within the MUD boundaries.
How does a MUD work?
The publically elected Board of Directors manages and controls all of the affairs of the MUD subject to the continuing supervision of the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. The Board establishes policies in the interest of its residents and utility customers. A MUD may adopt and enforce all necessary charges, fees, and taxes in order to provide district facilities and services.
What are MUD taxes?
Municipal Utility Districts are funded through bonds. Homeowners then pay off those bonds through MUD tax. As the debt decreases, MUD taxes may also decrease over time.
How do MUDs provide for parks or recreation facilities?
In addition to their common functions of water and wastewater service, MUDs can provide enhanced services for their residents like parks and recreation, deed restriction enforcement, and solid waste service. A MUD can provide for itself the recreational amenities that are approved by the Board of Directors and funded by the District.
Who manages a MUD?
MUDs are managed by a Board of Directors elected by property owners within the MUD.
Paying My Bill
How can I pay my bill?

Are there fees if I pay with a credit card?
A fee of 3% of your total bill is assessed if you pay with a credit or debit card, both online and in person. Fees also apply for automatic bank draft payments. There are no fees if you pay via check or money order.
