Mosquito Spraying at Pitts Road Park

Beginning last weekend the MUD began spraying for mosquitoes at Pitts Road Park. We want to make everyone aware of the application and also cognizant of the contents of the spray.

The product being used is poison-free, safe around children and pets, and should last up to four weeks. As stated on the manufacturer’s website, “Product, except for preservatives, is all garlic juice. It is designed to be diluted in water and sprayed on plants, grass, shrubs, flowers, ornamentals, trees, vines and in any standing water in the area including water under porches and decks.”

As to the initial smell, it continues, “Product normally becomes odorless in less than an hour.”

The company, Garlic Research Labs, also notes that the product does not harm vegetation, nor does it change the taste of any food plants. As an added benefit, it should also repel armadillos, deer, field mice, yard fleas, ticks, and geese. It does not harm bees, butterflies, birds, cats, dogs, or other small animals.

If you have any questions, please notify the Pecan Grove MUD at (281) 238-5000.

Thank you.

Pecan Grove Municipal Water District

April 21st Update from the President

Below is a picture of the gauge at Jones Creek at FM 359 showing the water level at 80.2 feet at 7:49 AM and a chart of the Brazos River level at the City of Richmond gauge.

EDP checked the drainage systems through the night with no issues found. As of this morning the South pump station has been started to get a proactive start on the impending rain. The current level in the main channel is approximately 1.5 feet above the base of the intake. The Pecan Lakes pump station has not run and the detention pond is at the minimum level. The North pump station is below the bar screen and Oyster Creek is at 6 feet. Bullhead Slough is gravity flowing at this time. All systems are functioning normally with no foreseen problems. EDP is continuing communication with the Fort Bend County Emergency Operations and we will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.

Letter from the President to Our Residents

Thank everyone for your patience today. I hope everyone is safe. We are doing our best to ensure everyone stays dry.

The National Weather Service has updated their prediction of the Brazos River. As of 2:49 PM, the Brazos River is expected to hit Gage Elevation 49.5’ tomorrow afternoon. Currently, Richmond’s Gage Elevation is 30.42’ which is approximately 13 feet higher than 5:45 AM this morning. Due to the watershed conditions and the rain forecasts, the NWS reports to our operator EDP and engineer Jones & Carter that is has a “low confidence” level on this forecast. Therefore, the NWS has issued a range of elevations for the crest. Their current range is Gage Elevation of 46’ to 52’. Our engineers confirm to me that the toe of the levee along the Pecan Grove levee system ranges from 80′ to 84′. At either elevation, our operator EDP will shut the South Outfall (under FM 359) and the Pecan Lakes outfall. Our engineers and operator will be in the District this evening to check some of the external and internal levels.

Afterwards we will send an update on the current levels and what the predicting means for Pecan Grove is we have more information. Although we are in frequent contact, I expect to hear from them with a significant update this evening between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. Please stay tuned to our MUD website for official District news and updates and be safe.

President, PGMUD

Parking Issues in the Neighborhood

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your assistance with some parking issues in the neighborhood. When parking in the roadway, please be aware that an emergency vehicle may need to get through. Two vehicles parked directly across from one another will, in some cases, make it impossible for a fire truck or ambulance to pass. This will delay their response to a potentially life threatening event. When parking on the street please make sure your right tires are less than 18 inches from the curb. Please avoid parking directly across from another vehicle.

We have also had some complaints about residents parked in their driveway, blocking the sidewalk. When the sidewalk is blocked, pedestrians and children on bicycles are forced into the street. Please be considerate and pull your vehicle up your driveway to clear the sidewalk.
