The District would like to take this opportunity to let residents know about laws and regulations pertaining to operation of Golf Carts and ATVs in the community. Use of these motorized vehicles is only allowed on a roadway, when it it a licensed vehicle, and must be operated by a licensed driver.
Texas Water Code, Section 49.217- Operation of a motor vehicle on a drainage ditch or detention pond or on land adjacent to a drainage ditch or detention pond is punishable by fine of up to $500.
Texas Water Code, Section 49.228- A person who wilfully destroys or damages district property is guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor punishable by fine of up to $2,000 or by confinement in jail for up to 180 days, or both.
The District has concerns that Golf Cart and ATV usage along the drainage ditches and detention ponds are causing damage that will need to be repaired, through the use of taxpayer dollars. Traffic along these areas can lead to serious ruts and erosion, as well as other safety concerns for residents.
Keep Motor Vehicles off Ditches and Ponds!

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.
