Voluntary Water Use Restrictions

Dear Customer:

Due to ongoing drought conditions, the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA) initiated Stage 1 water conservation measures. Because Harris-Fort Bend Counties MUD No. 3 is located within the boundaries of the WHCRWA, we are required to initiate Stage 1 water conservation measures. The WHCRWA and Harris-Fort Bend Counties MUD No. 3 may require mandatory water use restrictions if conditions worsen. Effective immediately, the following voluntary water use restrictions are in place:

  1. Customers with even-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on even-numbered days.
  2. Customers with odd-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days.
  3. Outdoor water use shall be limited to between the hours of 8:00 pm and 6:00 am on designated watering days.
  4. Customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.

The Board of Directors appreciates your cooperation and perseverance during this Conservation Condition. Once the Conservation Condition ends, we will notify you, and you may then return to normal usage. If conditions should worsen, it may be necessary to proceed to Stage 2, at which time you will be notified of the more stringent restrictions to ensure the availability of water in your community.

No Boil Water Notice

At this time, the District is NOT under a boil water notice. The water is safe to consume. Please check the website for updates.

Freeze Warning

Freezing temperatures possible Sunday thru Thursday. Protect pipes, people, and pets!

With upcoming weather expected to reach record lows, we want to remind everyone to take the time to inspect and insulate their household water lines.

Be sure to wrap exterior pipes and irrigation backflow preventers to avoid issues during the extreme cold. For tips on winterizing your irrigation system, view the below video.
