NWHCMUD 6 Customers:

Freeze Warnings and Hard Freeze Warnings Expected

The National Weather Service has advised that subfreezing temperatures are likely beginning Thursday night and into Friday morning following the passage of a strong cold front. Freeze Warnings and possible Hard Freeze Warnings can be expected. High temperatures could quite possibly remain below freezing throughout the day on Friday and not warm up above freezing until during the day on Saturday.

Steps for Winterizing your Home

  • Insulate pipes with insulation sleeves, wrapping or using slip-on foam pipe insulation. Do not leave any gaps without insulation as cold air can affect the pipe in these spaces.
  • Winterize your sprinkler system by turning the water off to your irrigation system and drain your backflow preventer.
  • Maintain a heating source inside the building to protect pipes against cold.
  • Open cabinets underneath faucets.
  • Exterior hose bibs are normally left unattended, disconnect hoses and insulate faucets with covers or blankets.
  • House Shut off valve: Know where your shut off valve is located in case of an emergency. Valve is usually on the side of the house near the garage. Some homes the valve is inside the garage wall.
  • If you choose to leave a faucet dripping, please only let the faucet drip slowly. NO STEADY STREAMS.
  • If traveling for the Holidays, it is recommended that you turn the water off at the street and drain all your plumbing.

Revised Drought Contingency Implementation of Stage 1

North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHRWA), who provides the water for Northwest Harris County MUD 6, is recommending that districts they serve implement Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plans.  This will go into effect July 13, and continue until notice is provided that the implementation has been lifted.

The goal is a 5% reduction in all water use and is currently voluntary. Mandatory measures may be imposed, if a water shortage continues.

Please conserve water daily under the following guidelines:

  1. District customers are requested to voluntarily reduce all water usage.
  2. Check for and repair all leaks, including sprinkler systems, leaky faucets, and/or running toilets.
  3. All outdoor water use should be avoided between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
  4. Customers with even-numbered addresses should limit outdoor water usage, including yard watering, to Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Cutten Green Residents – Wall Project Update

Dear Residents,

This is a wall project update from your NWHC MUD 6 board of directors.  We have received authorization to proceed with three of the four sections of the wall.  The approved sections are Hollister Road, the three sides (east, south, and west) of the water storage facility on Bourgeois, and the east side of the new park.  The new park wall will run from Greens Road to Bourgeois.

The county has advised us to put the Bourgeois Road section on hold, until they decide if they will proceed with widening Bourgeois from Hollister west to the bridge over the drainage channel. They have not given us a time table for their decision on the Bourgeois widening, but we hope to hear from them in the next 90 days.

The estimated time table for the approved for permitting sections is as follows:

  • Plans for these sections will go out for bid in June
  • Bids will be received in 60 days from the date of their mailing in June
  • Review of the bids and the awarding of the contract will take 45 days
  • Contractor mobilization will take 30 days
  • Initiation of the wall construction is currently estimated to be November 1

Prior to the start of construction, affected residents will receive a detailed construction timeline. This will include, among other things, removal of the existing wood fencing along Hollister Road, the east side of our new park, and the three sides of the Bourgeois water storage plant. The existing fencing will be taken down, and the new wall built in sections to minimize the amount of time residents are without a permanent barrier at the rear of their respective properties.  Construction will take approximately four months to complete.

Should you have questions regarding this information, please go to the district’s website at https://www.nwhcmud6.org.  Click on the Contact icon in the blue bar at the top of the page.  A screen will pop up that will enable you to post your contact information and your question(s).  The district will monitor this site and respond to you.

Your board of directors looks forward to this next phase of this project, and the ultimate completion of a much safer, quieter, and more architecturally pleasing barrier to your sub division.

Sincerely

Board of Directors, NWHC MUD 6
