*New* Smart Meters – Action Needed to Access New Features

The Harris County MUD 71 Board recently completed the replacement of all water meters in the District with new electronic smart meters. These meters will allow customers to monitor their water consumption on a daily basis through the Eye On Water website portal or mobile app, which may assist you with the detection of waters leaks and understanding how much water is used during irrigation and with other heavy water use activities.

In order to access the new smart meter tools, you first need to create a new Eye On Water account and register your smart meter. Visit https://eyeonwater.com/signup to access the online portal or to download the mobile app. When creating the account, you will need your mailing address zip code and water service account number (50099-xxxxxxxxxx) exactly as shown on your water bill.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Harris County MUD 71 operator, Regional Water Corporation, at (281) 897-9100.

Garbage Collection Guidelines

Pursuant to Harris County MUD 71’s agreement with its garbage and recycling provider, Best Trash, trash cans are limited to 40 gallons in size, and the total weight of each can must not exceed 40 pounds.  Residents may have more than one trash can as long as each trash can does not exceed 40 gallons or 40 pounds.  Please note that barrels, drums, and/or collapsible containers are not accepted.

Best Trash provides twice a week trash collection to MUD 71 residents, so residents are encouraged to put trash out both service days to avoid an overflow of trash bags.  Please do not use any trash cans larger than 40 gallons or weighing more than 40 pounds, as they may not be emptied and will be tagged stating that they exceed the size limit.

For more information regarding the garbage collection guidelines, please visit https://hcmud71.com/category/trash/ or contact Best Trash by phone, at (281) 313-2378, or by e-mail, at customerservice@besttrashtexas.com.  The District appreciates your assistance with this matter.
