Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 18 of Harris County, Texas (the “District”) is a municipal utility district created by an order of the Texas Water Commission (the “TWC”) dated May 17, 1972, and operates under the provisions of Chapter 54 of the Texas Water Code and other general statutes of Texas applicable to municipal utility districts.
The District is empowered, among other things, to purchase, construct, operate and maintain all works, improvements, facilities and plants necessary for the supply and distribution of water; the collection, transportation, and treatment of wastewater; and the control and diversion of storm water. The District may issue bonds and other forms of indebtedness to purchase or construct such facilities. The District is also empowered to establish, operate, and maintain fire-fighting facilities, independently or with one or more conservation and reclamation districts, after approval by the City of Houston, the TWC and the voters of the District.
The TWC exercises continuing supervisory jurisdiction over the District. The District is required to observe certain requirements of the City of Houston which limit the purposes for which the District may sell bonds to the acquisition, construction, and improvement of waterworks, wastewater, and drainage facilities and the refunding of outstanding debt obligations; limit the net effective interest rate on such bonds and other terms of such bonds; require approval by the City of Houston of District construction plans; and permit connections only to lots and reserves described in the subdivision plat that has been approved by the Planning Commission of the City of Houston and filed in the real property records. Construction and operation of the District’s drainage system is subject to the regulatory jurisdiction of additional State of Texas agencies.
The District contains approximately 449 acres of land, all of which lies within the exclusive extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston, Texas. The District is located in Harris County approximately 20 miles northwest of the central business district of Houston, and approximately five miles northwest of the intersection of F.M. 1960 and F.M. 249.
