Southern Montgomery County Municipal Utility District operates three water plants, five sewage lift stations, wastewater treatment plant, and reclaimed water plant. The District serves customers on both sides of Interstate 45 between Spring Creek and Robinson Road/Woodlands Parkway. The water plants include five (5) water wells ranging from 600 feet to 1,800 feet in depth, booster pumps, two 500,000 gallon ground storage tanks, and two 500,000 gallon elevated storage tanks and pressure tanks. The District also receives surface water from the San Jacinto River Authority.
In addition to potable water, the District provides a reclaimed water plant for irrigation and fire sprinkler systems. The reclaimed plant includes fine filters, booster pumps, pressure tanks and 530,000 gallon storage tank. Delivery of this water is only for irrigation. Please see the section titled Developing Programs for more information.
The District's wastewater is treated at our regional wastewater treatment plant. The plant provides wastewater treatment for Southern Montgomery County MUD, City of Oak Ridge North, and Conroe Independent School District Oak Ridge Campus.
Southern Montgomery County Municipal Utility District encourages all customers to conserve water throughout the year. Below are some helpful tips to minimize water use:
- One inch of water per week in the summer will keep Texas grasses healthy.
- Don't abuse the benefits of an automatic sprinkler system by overwatering. Set it to provide thorough but infrequent watering.
- Prevent evaporation of water. Water lawns early in the morning or in the evening during the hotter summer months.
- Plat water-efficient, well adapted and or native shrubs, trees and grasses.
- Keep grass 3 inches tall during the summer months and don't cut more than one-third of its length at one time.
- Use lots of mulch around your shrubs and trees. It will retain moisture, reduce run-off, moderate soil temperatures, and help with weed control.
