Parks Report

The Pecan Grove Property Owners Association (POA) has asked to plant a tree in Memorial Park in memory of Jim Ashmore, who was the long term president of the POA. The tree planting will occur probably late next fall when tree survival is better.

The POA held their annual Easter Egg hunt on March 30, 2024, at Pecan Grove Park on Pitts Road.  This event has some problems due to overcrowding, parking violations and the presence of food vendors at the park. These concerns will need to be addressed before next year’s event.

One of the fountains at Pecan Grove Park has been repaired and the second fountain is waiting on delivery of parts to get it back in service.

The pavilion in the park was reserved 7 times in April and the reservations for May have been busy as well.

UPDATE: Addressing Taste and Odor Concerns

Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District “PGMUD” has received the preliminary sample report from the 3rd party lab, Water Utility Services, Inc.  All samples were within permit, but 3 of the 27 samples did have a slight odor.  To view the report, click here.

This afternoon the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality “TCEQ” visited PGMUD to complete a site inspection of the water plants and pull their own samples throughout the distribution system.  They spent 3-4 hours in the district and found no abnormalities.  A few samples were taken back to their lab for further testing.  A formal report will be issued.

PMGUD general permit requires residuals to be no lower than 0.5 and no higher than 4.0 total chloramine.  Based on the Water Utility Services report, samples fall within permit range.

To move water through the system, Si Enviro heavily flushed water mains Sunday through Wednesday. The number of calls we have received today has decreased considerably, but if you are still experiencing odor in your water, please contact customer service at 281-238-5000 or 832-490-1601.

PGMUD wants to reiterate that your drinking water continues to meet or exceed all federal and state regulations and is safe to drink.

The Club at Pecan Grove and Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District

Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District (PGMUD) has become involved in the possible acquisition of Pecan Grove Country Club (PGCC).  The current owners of (PGCC) are in negotiations to sell the assets of the club to new owners.  A group of current members, The Club at Pecan Grove (TCPG), was looking to buy the assets if they could raise the capital to complete a deal.  The sale was not a certainty and the continued viability of PGCC or its successor is of major importance for our neighborhood.  If the current owners are unable to sell it, there is concern that it might be abandoned.  This would have very negative effect on property values in Pecan Grove subdivision.  The value of homes and property could decline by 10% to 20%, according to the Matheson and Associates, the financial advisor to PGMUD.

Something similar happened to the Quail Valley Country Club course several years ago and the impact on values was so substantial that Missouri City stepped in, bought the course and renovated it and the increase in property values has more than made up for the previous impact.

PGMUD is proposing to buy just the physical assets of PGCC and make arrangements for TCPG to manage those assets along with the membership.  Currently this acquisition is on going and will take several months to come to realization.  PGMUD will provide updates periodically in this website.
