Harris County MUD 132 – Water Line Replacement – Phase 1

Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 132 (“the District”) has begun a fifteen-year program to replace existing water lines and related appurtenances throughout the District. Phase 1 construction, which includes replacement of approximately 17,000 linear feet of water line in Pines of Atascocita Section 1, Pines of Atascocita Section 2 and Atascocita Shores Section 1 began in January 2020.

The projects will involve replacement of existing water lines with new PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipe, along with replacement of existing fire hydrants. The projects will also involve installation of new service leads from the new water mains to the individual water meters for each home or business. Upon completion of testing, the District’s contractors will be switching the meter connections over to the new water lines, which could involve a temporary loss of water service to the affected homes or businesses for up to an hour. The water line replacement projects will not involve replacement of any individual service lines between the water meters and the houses or businesses.

A large majority of the construction will be performed by trenchless methods in order to limit disturbances to above-ground improvements such as driveways, landscaping and trees. All work will be performed within the road right-of-way or within existing easements. The existing water lines will be cut, plugged and abandoned in place as part of the construction projects.

It is anticipated that the water line replacement projects will ultimately improve the water loss accountability of the District’s water distribution system by reducing leaks and breaks throughout the system.

Construction Details:

A notice to proceed was issued to the contractor on January 6, 2020, with anticipated completion of construction by August 2020. The contractor has submitted the attached phasing plan (See Phase 1 Phasing Exhibit ), showing the anticipated phasing of areas for the new water line installation. Once all of the new water lines have been installed and tested, the contractor will move forward with switching the water meters over to the new lines.

The contractor’s onsite work schedule is 7am – 5:30 pm, M-F.

Cost and Funding:

The total construction cost for this Phase 1 project is $ 1.2 million and is being funded from sales tax revenue generated by the Strategic Partnership Agreement with the City of Houston signed in 2005 to prevent annexation. There should be no increase in the District’s ad valorem property tax rate to fund the water line replacement projects.

Updated February 4, 2020

 

Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 132 (the "District") was created by an Order of the Texas Water Rights Commission, now the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), dated September 10, 1974.  The District operates under the authority of Chapters 49 and 54 of the Texas Water Code and other general statutes applicable to municipal utility districts.

Since its creation, the District has completed two annexations and currently includes 1,115.029 acres.  The District is located in northeast Harris County approximately 25 miles from the City of Houston.  FM 1960 East bisects the District approximately seven miles east of Highway 59.  In addition to serving its residential and commercial customers, the District serves homes within the City of Houston limits that are bound by the District's boundary and Lake Houston.

The District was created to provide (1) a water system consisting of water production, storage, and distribution facilities; (2) a sanitary sewer system consisting of internal sewer lines and laterals, sewage treatment and disposal; and (3) a drainage system consisting of storm sewers and drainage channels.  The District has two water plant facilities consisting of two water wells, storage facilities, pumps and emergency power generators; 1.54 million gallons per day of capacity in the Atascocita Central Wastewater Treatment Plant (the "Regional WWTP"); and a share in the trunk main to the Regional WWTP.  The responsibility of maintenance and operation of the internal systems in accordance with good health standards lies with the District.  The District pays its prorata share for operation and maintenance of the Regional WWTP and trunk main.  Harris County has maintenance responsibility for the public storm sewers that were conveyed to it after construction.
