Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 146 (FBCMUD 146), North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) and Masuen Consulting have partnered with Rain Water Solutions to provide residents with an opportunity to purchase rain barrels at a reduced price. The District and its program partners are offering this opportunity to residents in an effort to further promote water conservation initiatives within the District.
In November 2016, the Parks Committee and the Board of Directors approved a new program that allows residents living adjacent to the Oyster Creek Greenbelt and the Nature Preserve a mechanism to install new trees in these District common areas. At the request of the residents living adjacent to these areas and the recreational users of these common areas, the Parks Committee developed a program whereas residents can pay for the purchase and installation of a native tree in a location mutually agreeable to the resident and the District.
The purpose of the Reforestation Program is:
- To provide individual residents the opportunity to install a tree behind their home
- To promote the installation of new native trees along the greenbelt to ensure a native population of varying maturity
- To educate the community regarding the positive environmental impacts of reforestation
- To preserve property values
- To enhance the quality of life for recreational users of the OCG and the Nature Preserve
- To maintain or enhance wildlife habitat
- To sequester carbon dioxide
The program’s success will be monitored and it may be expanded in the future. To review the Reforestation Program in its entirety you may follow this link to the District’s website:

Fort Bend Municipal Utility District No. 146 (the “District”) is proud to announce that the District received an award from the North Fort Bend Water Authority (the “Authority”) for Outstanding 2016 Larry’s Toolbox Participating Municipal Utility District!
The Authority created its Larry’s Toolbox program to incentivize users within the Authority’s boundaries, including the District, to conserve water usage by 15% by 2040 in order to potentially save the Authority over $400 million dollars’ worth of surface water infrastructure improvements. The Larry’s Toolbox program allows users like the District to participate in and achieve points for any or all of nine different water conservation initiatives. If a user participates in enough of the initiatives and achieves sufficient points, they are eligible for a discounted water rate during the following year.
