Our Water System is getting Smarter!

SMART METERS ARE COMING!

NW MUD 5 will be updating and retrofitting all of its existing meters to “Smart Meters” using cell phone technology with daily updates of water usage.  The new “Eye on Water” app will allow the District and customers to monitor daily usage, save water, and receive notifications of excessive water usage based on the customer defined parameters. The notification could indicate a broken pipe, irrigation system malfunction, or leak. The Smart Meter app will be compatible with your PC, Tablet, or Smart Phone. To see an example of the “Eye on Water” report, click here.  This automation will eliminate the need to manually read your meters every month!

The retrofit process is expected to be complete in the next 12 to 18 months. Customers will receive notification when their new meter is installed along with instruction on how to set up an account to monitor your usage and receive notifications. This can be easily done after the initial 10 day activation period. You will still receive your monthly bill that will continue to show your usage as well.

Increased Security and Protection

As we continue to grow in the District, the Northwest Harris County MUD 5 Board has increased the number of Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Deputies assigned to our 20 sub-divisions to ten.  Funding from the Northwest Harris County MUD 5 Board consist of two Sergeants, one Corporal, and seven Deputies who will be assigned to various shifts providing 24 hour 7 days a week coverage for our communities.  The increased number of Deputies will enable the Constables to be more proactive and prevent crime with greater visibility within our communities.  Since 2018, we experienced a 6% increase in calls for police services. 62% of the calls pertain to theft, burglary, and vehicle burglary.  Another 4% of the calls pertain to criminal mischief.
Please help reduce these statistics by locking your cars, closing your garage doors, and securing your valuables where they are not easily visible and are protected.  If you see something suspicious, please call the Constables.  Together we can make a safer community.

In an emergency, please call 911 or the Pct. 4 24 hour Dispatch phone number at 281-376-3472.

The local contact number is 281-927-6200 for the main office at 6831 Cypresswood Drive in Spring TX 77379.
