Installation of Smart Meters
January 25, 2018

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the upcoming rollout of the installation of smart meters in the District! The smart meters will replace your current water meter. The entire process will take place in phases and will be completed in approximately 5 to 6 months, as there are over 3,000 meters in the District. Please note, once installation is complete in your section, you will receive a notification from the District's operator that includes information regarding how to set up your online “eye on water” account. This notification will be mailed to your residence unless you have an email address on file associated with your water account. The enrollment process is less than five minutes and will allow you to monitor your usage and set up leak alerts to notify you via text or email if the meter detects high usage. If you have any questions regarding the changeover, please email FBC MUD 151 or contact the District's operator at

Waterline Flushing Plan
November 29, 2017

The District's operator, Inframark, is conducting a waterline flushing plan throughout the neighborhood that is designed to remove small amounts of naturally occurring sediment from the water system. The flushing plan is part of the District's maintenance program and commitment to continue providing residents with high quality water. Inframark plans to begin flushing the morning of December 4th. We do not anticipate an interruption of service during the flushing, but minor water discoloration or a drop in water pressure may occur. If there are any issues during the flushing plan, do not hesitate to reach out to Inframark at (281) 579-4500.

Lake Firethorne Bank Improvements
November 9, 2017

Due to the erosion occurring along Lake Firethorne, the Board has approved phase 1 of an erosion control and shoreline improvement project which will re-establish, protect, and improve the banks of Lake Firethorne. The project includes adding landscaping rock to stabilize the bank. Phase 1 also includes the addition of fishing areas. Construction is anticipated to begin around November 13th and be completed around mid-December. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Ducks around Lake Firethorne
October 16, 2017

Due to the health and safety hazard associated with the large population of ducks around Lake Firethorne, the Board of Directors is having a professional contractor relocate the non-native Muscovy ducks in an effort to control the population. High density duck and waterfowl populations can cause reduced water quality, increased amounts of bacteria in the water, damaged landscaping, and contribute to soil erosion on the shoreline. Please note that the native ducks, such as whistler ducks, are not allowed to be removed and will continue to congregate in large numbers if they are being fed by residents. Residents are encouraged to refrain from feeding the ducks to assist in controlling the population. Please see additional information from the Center for Disease Control here.

Hurricane Harvey Update
August 31, 2017

Firethorne residents – We wanted to notify the community that all District facilities remained functional throughout the storm. At no time during the storm did we experience interruption of services to the residents. Many areas in the District experienced significant water in the streets, and while this is not ideal, the street system is designed to convey storm water in large events like Harvey.

Many areas in the region were not as fortunate as our community during this historic event. The District's Board and consultants sends our thoughts and prayers to those that were impacted by this storm. If residents have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email us here.
