About Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District

District Description

pic_8On May 27, 1975, Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District (PGMUD) was created by order of the Texas Water Commission (now called the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, or TCEQ) and confirmed by election on January 15, 1977. The District lies wholly in the ETJ of Richmond, in Fort Bend County, Texas. The District is empowered to construct, operate and maintain all water and wastewater facilities required to service the residents within the boundaries of the District. Pecan Grove MUD is somewhat unique in that it also includes a levee system.

All land in the District, consisting of approximately 1,370 acres of residential development, 30 acres of multifamily apartments (580 units), 224 acres of golf course, country club facilities and undevelopable property, 25 acres of commercial property, and 25 acres of school sites, is served by water, sanitary sewer and drainage facilities. Residential subdivisions within the boundaries of the District include Pecan Grove Plantation, The Grove, The Greens, Plantation Place, Pecan Lakes, and The Terrace at Pecan Grove. As of February 28, 2019, the District contained 4,389 occupied single-family residential connections, 32 vacant single-family residential connections, and 2 connections currently in the name of a builder pending closing by a homebuilder. Based on the 2018 certified tax rolls of the District, the average house value is approximately $244,423.

In addition to the residential development, the District contains a 580-unit apartment community (which is approximately 94% occupied according to property management), country club facilities including clubhouse, a 27 hole golf course, tennis courts and swimming pool, 30 commercial connections, including a day care center, a grocery store, several small shopping centers, and approximately 9 restaurants or other service establishments. The District also includes a church and two elementary schools which are not subject to taxation. The District provides out-of-District water service to a middle school and water and sewer service to a third elementary school. The District owns three parcels of land being used for park purposes. There are also multiple small parks owned by area homeowner associations.
