Water Conservation

Dear Residents:

Harris County MUD 374 has been notified by West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA) that Cypress Creek Lakes (CCL), as well as all subdivisions in Harris County, will have a limited supply of surface water allocated during the peak demand periods. Peak demand periods are usually May through September.

WHCRWA is an entity set up by the Texas Legislature to supply surface water from the City of Houston to the outlying suburbs. The reasoning is to decrease the use of ground water. The use of ground water is depleting the underground water supply consequently causing extensive subsidence in the area.

Previously during peak demand months, CCL has exceeded the WHCRWA committed amount. If CCL exceeds that allocation in the future, WHCRWA will shut off the flow of water. CCL will then have to rely on ground water and go on a Drought Contingency Plan. Go to the following link to view the Drought Contingency Plan:

With these water restrictions, it is imperative, that we are mindfully conservative as a community to reduce the use of water during these peak demand periods.

The bulk of water consumption in CCL is for irrigation and other outdoor uses. Please ensure that your irrigation systems are leak free.

Please try to limit your irrigation to no more than twice per week. Please disengage your sprinkler system during rainfall.

If you see a water leak anywhere in our subdivision please report it immediately. You may call Inframark 24 hours a day at 281-398-8211.

The irrigation of the flowers and grass in the common areas around the subdivision is supplied by the retention lakes. This non-potable water does not count towards our WHCRWA allocation.

This will require the cooperation of every resident.

Thank you.

Board of Directors for Harris County MUD 374

MUD 374 Property Tax Rate Lowered

Harris County Municipal Utility District 374’s Board of Directors voted October 11, 2018 to lower property taxes to 82 cents from the current 85 cents per one hundred dollar taxable value. HC 374 covers Phase 1 and Phase 11 of Cypress Creek Lakes. The reduction will still allow the district to maintain current facilities and operations. The taxable value of each individual property is set by Harris County Appraisal District so the amount of reduction will vary for each home. Each property owner will see this new rate reflected in their tax statement to be sent in December.

Sincerely,

MUD 374 Board members
