Notice of Water System Flushing

Flushing of the District’s water lines will be performed beginning on Monday, February 3, 2020. The flushing may continue until Friday, February 7, 2020.

During these days, you may notice discoloring of the water due to mineral sediment that is being flushed out of the system. The sediment is made of naturally occurring minerals. This sediment can cause permanent staining of clothing and some porous surfaces.

Please check the water before washing clothes or filling your pool or spa.

This flushing is being conducted to perform routine maintenance of the District’s fire hydrants and water mains. We expect to complete the work in the timeframe mentioned above; however, discolored water may persist for a short time after the work is complete.

If you have questions about this or other issues related to your water or sewer service, please call EDP at 832-467-1599 or visit

Thank you for your patience while this important work is being performed.

Let Us Recycle Those Christmas Trees!

Fort Bend MUD No. 185 will pick up – and recycle – all clean Christmas trees placed curbside. The date for recycling is Tuesday, January 7th.

Please remove your tree base before placing your tree curbside. Trees with flocking, lights, ornaments or other decorations cannot be recycled, so place only clean trees at the curb by 7:00am. Please do your part this Holiday season to cut down on the unnecessary use of landfill space. We also encourage you – throughout the year – to fill up those curbside recycling bins. For items not accepted in bins, call or visit the Fort Bend County Recycle/Environmental Center at 1200 Blume Road, on the western edge of the Rosenberg city limits.

Hours of operation at the Fort Bend County Recycle / Environmental Center are:

  • Recycling: Monday through Saturday 8:00am – 4:00pm (except holidays), Closed on Wednesdays
  • Household Hazardous Waste: Mondays 9:00am – 6:00pm, 1st Saturday of each month 8:00am – 2:00pm

The automated Recycling / Household Hazardous Waste information telephone line is: (281) 633-7527.
