Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 149, through the dedication of its Directors and Consultants, is committed to providing the highest quality of water and sewer service at the most economical costs to its customers and taxpayers.
Fort Bend County MUD 149 has recently entered into a service contract to provide mosquito spraying within the MUD. Spray services for the summer season are scheduled to begin June 8, 2020.
Please help the MUD in its efforts to minimize the mosquito population by routinely checking your own property for areas or items that may be holding stagnant water.
As you may be aware, residents in Sienna Plantation and the eastern half of Riverstone, including MUD 149, are provided with water from the City of Missouri City’s (“City”) surface water plant. As part of the City’s planned expansion of the water plant to double the water supply capacity, the City has notified the MUDs serving these communities that a planned shut-down of the City’s water plant will take place from May 4 through May 7, 2020, to prepare the site for future construction. During this temporary shut-down, the MUDs will utilize groundwater wells to provide adequate water supplies to its residents.
At this time, MUD 149 does not anticipate any issues regarding water quality or disruption of service. However, the City has notified the MUDs that based on previous experience, some residents may detect subtle changes in the taste or odor of water when this switch is made. The City and the MUDs monitor and test water quality daily to ensure that water being delivered to residents meets all applicable standards related to drinking water.
If you have any concerns regarding your water, please contact the MUD’s customer service line at 832-490-1600.
In response to the continuing effects of the Coronavirus and in observance of our employee’s safety, we are asking that all waste be placed in plastic bags and tied off to avoid any direct contact with the garbage.
Trash collection services will continue as normal, but we are experiencing an increase in the amount of residential solid waste as a result of residents spending more time at home. Please be patient as we are doing our best to get everyone collected.
Green waste collection will continue; however we anticipate delays in service. By taking the following steps, residents can help minimize these delays:
- Mulch leaves and grass clippings instead of bagging them for disposal.
- Limit the amount of pruning and tree trimming to only what is essential.
- If utilizing a landscaping company, ensure all green waste is collected and hauled off by the contractor.
Please continue to place your recycling loose in your container. However, if anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of any transmissible illness, please place recyclables in plastic bags and dispose of with your regular garbage.
