Fairfield Municipal Utility District residents may have learned that there was a main line break that is affecting the City of Houston. A boil water notice has been suggested for residents of the City of Houston only.
This news post is to let Fairfield MUD residents know this suggested boil water notice and main line break will not affect the District. The District does not receive any service or water from the City of Houston, and the system is working as designed and without issue.
Again, the District will not be affected in any way by the situation in the City of Houston.
The North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) fees are going up effective April 1, 2020. This fee is charged to all water well owners in their jurisdiction. This fee is passed on to the final consumer via a line item on the water bill. Currently the fee is $3.85 per 1000 gallons of water used. The new cost will be $4.25 per 1000 gallons. This will increase your bill significantly, depending on how much water you use. The MUD’s charges for the water will not increase, only the NHCRWA fee.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact the Board of Directors. Remember that the Directors are residents of the District also, and have to pay the same fees.
Your water bill will increase with the April billing cycle.
