Water Conservation Program

The Harris-Galveston Subsidence District has been working with many entities, like Cypress Creek Utility District, to promote water conservation and the efficient use of our water resources. Over the past year, the District has added additional resources to our Water Conservation Program focusing specifically on outdoor water use and landscape irrigation. Outdoor water use can account for nearly 40% of the annual household water use. The additional resources tools provided by this program include free online guidance to homeowners on efficient outdoor water use based on real-time climate data. You can access the information by going to smarteraboutwater.org/resources.

Information on the website will be updated from time to time, so if you would like to be notified of new or updated information please go to smarteraboutwater.org/resources to register for updates. Additionally, we welcome comments on this resource and look forward to hearing from you regarding this new tool provided by the District’s Water Conservation Program.

Rate Increase

Effective April 1st, the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) will be raising the rates that it charges the Cypress Creek Utility District (the District). Accordingly, the District is passing through this rate increase, and therefore the NHCRWA charge on your water bill will increase from $2.64 to $3.19 per 1,000 gallons of water consumed on your water bill. Currently, the average monthly residential NHCRWA bill is about $18.43 and with the new rate structure, it will be about $22.27, a $3.84 increase.
