Cypress Hill M.U.D. #1 is a municipal utility district created by an order of the Texas Water Commission (now the TCEQ) dated September 24, 1979, after a hearing upon a petition for creation. The creation of the district was confirmed at an election held within the District on April 4, 1981. The rights powers, privileges, authority and functions of the districts are established by the general laws of the State of Texas pertaining to municipal utility districts.
The District is empowered, among other things, to purchase, construct, operate, and maintain all works, improvements, facilities, and plants necessary for the supply of water; the collection, transportation, and treatment of wastewater; and the control and diversion of storm water. The District may provide solid waste collection and disposal and contract for or employ peace officers.
The District currently has a contract with Harris County Precinct #4 for patrol and security within the District.
Under certain circumstances the District also is authorized to construct, develop and maintain park and recreational facilities.
The District contains approximately 1,116.29 acres of land, and is located entirely within Harris County, Texas, approximately 25 miles northwest of the central business district of the City of Houston, Texas. The entire District lies within the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.
