Harris County Municipal Utility District 285


Harris County Municipal Utility District Number 285 was created on January 8, 1986 upon hearing a petition arguing for it’s creation. The district now services an area HCMUD285 – water services of approximately 1,227.4 acres of land including approximately 263.17 acres that the District annexed in January, 2004, approximately 434.50 acres that the District annexed in February, 2004, and approximately 19.72 acres that the District annexed in August, 2007. Our District’s growth is characteristic of the strong residential housing market in the greater Houston area, fueled by low interest rates and high consumer confidence.

Like most people, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about your water and sewer service.  As long as water comes out of the faucet when you turn it on, or the toilet flushes when you push the handle, it is easy to take this finite natural resource for granted.  It is the responsibility of the HCMUD285 Board of Directors, our consultants and service providers to make sure that water is there when you need it.  In addition to our record for providing quality customer service,  we are proud to fulfill our commitment to area residents including:

  • Maintaining the quality of the water supply;
  • Offering reliable service and quality responses;
  • Maintaining the integrity and safety of the sewer system;
  • Controlling the tax base within acceptable and responsible limits; and,
  • Ensuring the healthy financial growth and stability of the District and those it serves.

As our water customer, we invite you to access this website for information about our water services and related issues of interest and concern to our community, and trust that you will find it a helpful resource should you have billing or repair questions.

The Board of Directors works for YOU…each and every resident of our District.  We encourage you to let us hear from you…let us know how we’re doing and what we can do to improve.  We need your input, opinions, comments, and complaints, and we welcome your questions, too, so take the time to contact us.

Harris County MUD District 285 has received the Total Coliform Rule Program Award for 2005 from the Texas Commission on Enviornmental Quality. To see this certificate, click Here.
