Why MUDs Exist

A Municipal Utility District (“MUD”) is a special purpose governmental entity of the State of Texas. Regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (the “TCEQ”), the MUD’s primary function is to provide water, wastewater, drainage, and in some cases, roads and parks and recreational facilities and services within its boundaries. A MUD may sell bonds, levy and collect taxes, provide and charge for water and sewer services, build infrastructure, condemn property, and make regulations to accomplish its purposes.

A MUD is managed by an elected Board of Directors. Each Director on the Board is a resident or a property owner within the boundaries of the District. The Board of Directors conducts a regular meeting, to transact the business of the District. These meetings are open to the public, and you are welcome to attend the meetings of your District.

The MUD and its directors are under the supervision of the Attorney General of Texas, the TCEQ, and the City.
