Harris County MUD 148 is proud to announce that all fire hydrants that are 40+ years old have been replaced, and all other fire hydrants within the district have been refurbished.
The Board for Harris County MUD 148 would like to wish all fathers a Happy Father’s Day. Thank you for all the ways you go above and beyond every day for your families.
Harris County MUD 148 is continuing the hydrant replacement project, which will replace approx. 50 hydrants throughout the district. This project will provide much needed reliability on hydrants in the event of a fire in the community. Eventually all fire hydrants will be replaced in the District.
Hydrants have been in the District since 1975, with some being rusted out and needing replacement for safety reasons, including ADA compliance. Some of the replacements can be seen below, where they are removing hydrants from sidewalks and relocating them to another area.
The MUD 148 Board of Directors held the drive-thru Water Smart Event on June 6 and June 13, 2020. At the event we provided over 5 thousand free masks (cloth and disposable), hand sanitizers, and cleaning products. We also provided CDC information pertaining to COVID 19 and information about resource services that are available to MUD 148 residents. We serviced over 700 families with much needed supplies.
We’d like to thanks everyone, including the MUD 148 Board of Directors, Angels 4 Hope, Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Hon. Harold Dutton, our friends at Center of South Houston Sathya Sai, and everyone else that participated.
