The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) is kicking off an effort to develop a Watershed Protection Plan for Cypress Creek. The aim of this project is to develop locally-supported, voluntary strategies to reduce sources of pollution, primarily bacteria, within the watershed.
The first public information meetings for this project will be held:
One of the purposes of these introductory meetings will be to receive nominations of local stakeholders to serve on a Steering Committee to provide overall guidance for this project. There will also be other opportunities for public feedback as the project moves forward.
Additional information on the project can be found at www.cypresspartnership.com.

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.
