Please be advised that effective November 15, 2022, the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Authority”) withdrew implementation of Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan. Stage 1 drought conditions have been lifted.
We thank you for your cooperation during this time in helping us to conserve water. A copy of the Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan is included on the Authority’s website: www.whcrwa.com.
Due to ongoing drought conditions, The West Harris County Regional Authority (WHCRWA) initiated Stage 1 water conservation measures. Because Harris County MUD 120 is located within the boundaries of the WHCRWA, we are required to initiate Stage 1 voluntary utility water conservation measures. The WHCRWA and Harris County MUD 120 may require mandatory water use restrictions if conditions worsen. Effective immediately, the following voluntary water use restrictions are in place:
Voluntary water use restrictions now in place:
- Outdoor water use shall be voluntary between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight).
- All outdoor water usage, including, but not limited to, lawn and garden watering, car washing, and window washing, shall be limited as follows:
- District residents and other users of water within the district with even numbered addresses may use water outdoors on even number days (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8)
- District residents and other users of water within the district with odd numbered addresses may use water outdoors on odd numbered days (1, 3, 5,7 or 9)
- In the event no street address exists, only district residents and other users of water within the district living on the north and west side of a street may use water outdoors on even numbered days. District residents and other users of water within the district on the south and east side of a street may use water outdoors on odd numbered days.
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.
The Harris County MUD 120 Board recently completed the replacement of all water meters in the District with new ultrasonic smart meters. These meters will allow customers to monitor their water consumption on a daily basis through the Eye On Water website portal or mobile app, which may assist you with the detection of waters leaks and understanding how much water is used during irrigation and with other heavy water use activities.
In order to access the new smart meter tools, you first need to create a new Eye On Water account and register your smart meter. Visit https://eyeonwater.com to access the online portal or to download the mobile app. When creating the account, you will need your zip code and water service account number exactly as shown on your water bill.
Using Eye On Water
The Eye On Water portal and mobile app can help you review your water usage on a daily basis, assist with the detection of water leaks, and even allow you to set up automated leak detection alerts. For more information on viewing your water usage and setting up leak alerts, please view the videos below.
If you have any further questions or need assistance regarding your new smart meter or the Eye On Water website portal or mobile app, please contact the MUD 120 operator, Environmental Development Partners, at (832) 467-1599.
