Wildlife Management in Harris County MUD 500 Lakes

On October 10, 2018, MUD 500 received a report of a sighting of an approximately 3’ to 4’ alligator at approximately 10:00 p.m. on October 9, 2018, in the southwestern portion of MUD 500’s lakes, south of Tuckerton Road and west of Greenhouse Road, near the Cypress Cove subdivision. MUD 500 immediately notified its wildlife management contractor of the sighting and directed the trapper to actively monitor for an alligator and, if one is located, to immediately remove it upon obtaining the required nuisance permit from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

MUD 500 continues to request that residents report any sightings of alligators to its operator, Environmental Development Partners, at (832) 467-1599. MUD 500 encourages your district to share this information with your residents. Please visit MUD 500’s website, at http://www.hcmud500.org, for additional information.

Electronic Water Meter Access

Over the last year, Harris County MUD No 172 has replaced the water meters throughout the District with automated water meters. The meter provided by Mueller systems provides a secure site or portal that allows customers to view their water usage on line, as well as get alerts for leaks etc.

If you have interest in getting access to your electronic meter, please complete the form below.

You can also send an email to customerservice@h2oconsulting.net (our operations company) and provide the information above.

Your information will be provided to the Mueller metering system and they will send you a welcome email from support@muellersystems.com that will invite you to set up access to Harris County MUD172 Consumer Portal.

Mueller will send you a temporary login and password which you will be able to change. Once you are in the system you can graphically view your water usage, set up water leak alerts and usage thresholds. You will be amazed at how much water you use for irrigation of your landscaping.
