Drought conditions in the area have forced some municipal utility districts in Cinco Ranch to implement water conservation measures.
“While some homeowners have been asked to comply with voluntary water conservation measures, other MUDs are under mandatory conservation measures, punishable for violations. Residents should take careful note of which MUD their property falls under, so as to avoid confusion.
Cinco Southwest districts are under mandatory restrictions; residents and business owners should have received a direct notice via mail from Severn Trent Services shortly after June 2. Properties in the Cinco Ranch master district #MUDs Nos. 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14#, however, are only asked to voluntarily restrict water usage, as urged by public signs posted throughout the area.”
