(See FBMUD118 website under RESOURCES / DOCUMENTS / PROJECT DOCUMENTS for more information on each park project.)

The District recently finished the design phase on playground improvements at Waterside Village Park. The project will include a new large and small playground area in addition to new pavilion. The project was publicly advertised, and bids were received in April 2019. Contract are currently being generated and the projected construction start date is June 2019. This project is a part of the District purchasing the playground property and equipment on the Village side of Water Side Estates from the HOA for around $80,000. The District recently hired park maintenance company to monitor and keep the park clean, safe and maintained. Construction is fast approaching and we kindly ask for your patience and cooperation. Safety is our main concern.

The District completed numerous capital projects intended to improve the quality of life within the District and promote water conservation. These include the addition of a walking/jogging trail within Barski Park (Phase 1), a children’s splash pad area, a new playground, a pavilion, and a reclaimed water irrigation system to serve District greenspace areas. The Board of Director’s respectfully requests your patience as the construction of the reclaimed water project is still ongoing and expected to be completed in June 2019. The Board of Directors of the District encourages all individuals interested in the projects to review the maps provided and attend the Board of Director’s monthly meetings held at 6:00 PM on the second Tuesday of every month at the office of the Greater Fort Bend EDC, One Fluor Daniel Drive, Sugar Land, Texas 77478.

The Splash Pad has been completed and is open for use. There is a push button on a pad to activate the equipment. It will be operational from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily from April through October. Splash pad rules sign was recently damaged due to inclement weather and should soon be replaced.

The pipeline for the Reclaimed Water Project is fully completed and site restoration has been reestablished throughout the subdivision. The project has ongoing construction work solely at the District’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. Once these improvements are completed the District will be upgrading their irrigation sprinkler system to accommodate the new water system. The District is required to provide proper identification on all equipment. Improvements to the irrigation system should start in May 2019.

Larry’s Toolbox Program

Fort Bend MUD 118 participates in the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) Larry’s Toolbox Program. The program is designed to assist MUD’s in promoting water conversation. There are different initiatives we elect to participate in within the program term (yearly) that allows us to receive points. These points, if program requirements are met, can result in some savings through the next calendar year from the NFBWA. In 2018, FB118 participated in an initiatives to give away three rain barrels to residents within the community. Maheen Khan, Zenna Sumo and John Wisbrock were the lucky winners of this initiative. If you are interested in receiving a rain barrel or would like more information on the program, please visit www.nfbwa.com or call 832-467-1599.
