Wipes have become a significant problem for MUDs in Texas. See the video below for more information:
If you are lucky, wipes that you flush will make it through your property’s sewer pipes, and you will get to split the costs of unclogging pumps and major infrastructure with all your neighbors. If you are unlucky, you will clog your own pipes and be responsible for 100% of the costs of repair yourself.
HCMUD #136 has been able to maintain one of the lowest tax rates in Harris County compared to similar MUDs because of residents that keep wipes, grease, and other non-biodegradable items out of the sewer system. Please continue to help us keep taxes low by keeping wipes out of the pipes.
