No Boil Water Notice

Cypress Hill Municipal Utility District residents may have learned that there was a main line break that is affecting the City of Houston. A boil water notice has been suggested for residents of the City of Houston only.

This news post is to let Cypress Hill MUD residents know this suggested boil water notice and main line break will not affect the District. The District does not receive any service or water from the City of Houston, and the system is working as designed and without issue.

Again, the District will not be affected in any way by the situation in the City of Houston.

Why Your Water Bill Is Increasing

Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 customers can expect to see an increase in their next water bill due to an increase in the fee imposed by the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Regional Authority”). The fee increased April 1, 2019 from $3.40 per 1,000 gallons of water to $3.85 per 1,000 gallons of water.

Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 is mandated by state law to participate in the Regional Authority, which was established to bring surface water to North Harris County. All municipal utility districts within its boundaries must pay the Regional Authority a fee on each 1,000 gallons of water pumped from wells or purchased from the Regional Authority. Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 passes the fee through to its customers with a 5% mark-up so it can pay the fee on water used in district operations and not billed to customers.

The fees charged by Cypress Hill MUD No. 1 for operation of its water and sewer system have not changed in more than four years; however, customers will see an increase in their bills because of the Regional Authority fee. This fee is expected to continue increasing annually because of the cost of converting to surface water. For more information on the project, see www.NHCRWA.org.

You can control the increase in your water bill by using less water. Please go to the Water page to get water conservation pointers.
