Storm Water Management Program

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (the “TCEQ”) plans to issue the renewed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit No. TXR040000 (the “General Permit”) this year to regulate the quality of storm water conveyed through public storm sewer systems. Fort Bend County MUD 81 (the “District”) will be required to comply with this renewed General Permit for 5 years and will require the preparation of annual reports outlining the actions completed by the District to regulate the quality of storm water in its storm sewer system.

The District has authorized Quiddity Engineering, its current engineering consultant, to develop a Storm Water Management Program to ensure these regulations are met and are properly documented. Quiddity will create clear, specific and measurable goals that meet the General Permit’s requirements for storm water quality regulation to be followed by all District consultants.

Once prepared, the annual reports will be posted on the District’s website for public record and Quiddity anticipates completion of the Annual Report for Permit Year 1 to be no later than March 30, 2025.

FB County MUD 81 Water Delivery Status

At the current time, MUD 81 water production and delivery operations have NOT triggered any of the District’s Drought Contingency Plans. However, the District continues to closely monitor all water wells and pumping systems for any signs of stress. Should any of the designated trigger points for implementation of our Drought Contingency Plan be breached, the District will disseminate the pertinent information and the recommended or required actions to be taken by all residents. Communication of these will be via email blasts, website notices and requisite signage at the entrances to Weston Lakes.

In the meantime and so long as this period of extreme drought continues (sources: National Drought Mitigation Center, U.S. Department of Agriculture and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), please be prudent with your water usage and avoid unnecessary or excessive water use.

Lead & Copper Testing- May 25th & 26th, 2023

Fort Bend MUD 81 Residents,

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Lead and Copper Rule
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) federally regulates the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) laws under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) passed by congress to protect our drinking water.

Flint, Michigan was in the headlines due to unhealthy levels of lead in their drinking water. That occurred because the water authority changed the water source and didn’t not properly treat the water. As a result, the lead pipes leading into homes and businesses began to corrode and resulted in unsafe lead levels.

In 1991 the EPA published regulations to control the lead and copper in our drinking water. The goal is to lower the levels by reducing corrosion in the lines which leads to the increase of dangerous metals which can cause health issues

How do we test for these metals?
Testing for copper and lead requires the assistance of the resident or homeowner since the problem arises in the pipe leading from the meter to the domicile. You will be provided with a sample bottle along with instructions on how to collect from a frequently used interior faucet. Residents that provide a sample will receive the results within 30 days from receipt of the sample.

LJA Engineering will be in the Fort Bend 81 MUD district to collect the water samples May 25 and 26, 2023.

Additional information about the Lead and Copper Rule can be found here:

Thank you for your cooperation.
