MUD 81 Update – Covid 19
During this time of social distancing and self quarantine one thing still stands true, WATER still flows!

Residents need to know they will still see Inframark trucks and field personnel performing their daily tasks that are part of maintaining the collection and distribution systems.

The appropriate personal protective equipment will be used by personnel during these daily tasks. Also, we have asked them to keep the appropriate social distance (6 feet) ifapproached by a resident.

According to the World Health Organization, “the presence of the COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies and based on current evidence the risk to water supplies is low.”

EPA’s drinking water regulations require treatment at public water systems to remove or kill pathogens, including viruses.

TAX RATE FOR 2019: $0.345/$100
On September 24, 2019 the Board of Directors for Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District 81 approved the following tax rate for 2019: October, 2019
Total Tax Rate(per $100 of appraised value):
$0.345
This rate is applied as follows:
Maintenance and Operations:
$0.161
Debt Service:
$0.184
While the overall tax rate remains the same as 2018, the above rates provide a reallocation of $0.016 from Debt Service to Maintenance and Operations. This small rate shift provides increased funds for repair, upgrade and maintenance of existing infrastructure. In mid-2019, the Board commissioned Jones and Carter, the District’s Consulting Engineers, to produce a five-year Capital Improvements Plan (CIP). This Plan provides a guide for suggested capital expenditures on equipment upgrades and overhauls, equipment and infrastructure replacement and overall facilities review. Using the CIP as a guide, the Board of Directors allocated $383,000 for capital improvements and special projects within the District in the 2019-2020 budget. Specific projects include the inspection and cleaning of sewer lines constructed in the 1980’s and recoating of various water tanks.
