Residential Water Irrigation System Evaluation

The W.I.S.E. Guys residential program is a free, no obligations water conservation service currently being offered to Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 146 residents.

The purpose of this program is to evaluate existing residential irrigation systems and make recommendations for improvements to the performance of the system and to the scheduling of the controller to eliminate unnecessary waste. The program allows for a licensed irrigator/representative to provide face-to-face education to the homeowner on efficient irrigation and proper controller scheduling which in turn will eliminate unnecessary waste and allow for residents to save money on their water bills. You are not required to make any adjustments or repairs to your system.

The W.I.S.E. Guys representative will not make any repairs to the system as part of the evaluation. The W.I.S.E Guys representative will only make the recommended adjustments to the system controller if the customer allows such adjustments. In many instances the adjustment to the system controller is the first step to water conservation and cost savings.

The homeowner is under no obligation to hire the W.I.S.E. Guys representative to repair the problems found within their system.

Click here to register. Your application will be assigned to an approved W.I.S.E. Guys contractor who will contact you within seven (7) days to schedule an evaluation.

Please share this information about the W.I.S.E. Guys program with your friends and neighbors in Fort Bend County M.U.D. No. 146.

Oyster Creek Dredging and Desilting Operations by Gulf Coast Authority Update

As most of you are well aware the dredging and desilting operation being performed by Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA) along Oyster Creek is moving at a slow pace, largely because of heavy rain events through the spring. In an effort to make better progress GCWA has added a second machine and operator to the project.

GCWA will also begin removing several trees in their easement along the creek that impact their ability to properly dredge and desilt. A majority of the trees being removed are invasive species such as hackberries and chinaberries. GCWA has assured the District that every effort will be made to minimize removing any native species such as oaks and pecans. Removal of some of these trees will also help with an area that currently holds water consistently creating a mosquito breeding ground. The tree removals should be complete early in the week of July 25 th .

For inquiries related to this project please contact Gulf Coast Water Authority during office hours, Monday through Thursday, 6:30 AM – 5:00 PM, by phone at 281-331- 3137 or David Hudson at (281) 932-1047.
