Request to Voluntarily Reduce Water Usage

Fort Bend MUD 118 and the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) continue to monitor the impacts of this freeze event and are anticipating a reduction in surface water delivery from the City of Houston. Fort Bend MUD 118 and the NFBWA request your assistance by voluntarily reducing water usage. Please conserve water as much as possible as we navigate this weather event.

No Boil Water Notice for FBMUD 118

There is no boil water notice in effect for Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 118 residents or businesses. The City of Houston has issued a Boil Water Notice for their water system and other systems effected by the City’s issue. While local media (and social media) are reporting boil water notices for the City and those other Water Districts in our area, these notices do not pertain to Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 118 receivers, as the District maintains independent water production facilities. Again, Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 118 is not currently under a Boil Water Notice.

In the event a Boil Water Notice needs to be issued for our community, notification will be provided. For immediate and up-to-date 24/7 information, you can always reach out to EDP’s 24-hour Customer Service line at (832) 467-1599.

Voluntary Water-Use Restrictions Activated

Update: Rescinded August 30, 2022

Due to prolonged drought conditions and North Fort Bend Water Authority’s initiation of Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan (“DCP”), Fort Bend MUD 118 (the “District”) has instituted Stage 1 water conservation measures of its DCP. Effective immediately, the following voluntary water-use restrictions are in place:

  1. All outdoor water usage will be limited to even-numbered [calendar] days for customers with even-numbered addresses and odd-numbered [calendar] days for water customers with odd-numbered addresses. Outdoor water use is prohibited between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight) [on the designated days of outdoor water use].
  2. Water customers are asked to voluntarily reduce water use by checking your toilets, showerheads, and faucets for leaks; checking under sinks for wet spots, leaking supply lines, fittings, or valves; and checking your irrigation system for leaks, repairing as needed. Sweep driveways, sidewalks, and patios instead of hosing them off.

The Board of Directors of Fort Bend MUD 118 appreciates your cooperation to help conserve one of our community’s most important resources. Please stay alert to District communication as drought conditions improve or worsen.
