What is a MUD?

A Municipal Utility District (MUD) is an entity authorized by statute or the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ).  The primary function of a MUD is to provide water, sewer, and stormwater drainage services in areas where municipal services are not available, as well as trash collection, recycling and emergency services within the MUD boundaries. MUDs are typically financed through the sale of bonds which, in turn, are serviced by the taxes levied and collected by the MUD.  MUDs also have authority to condemn property through eminent domain and establish easements to install, inspect, repair, and maintain distribution and collection lines.
