MUD 26 – Lamping Project

Your Brazoria County Municipal Water District 26 is responsible for financing critical areas of infrastructure inside our neighborhood. An important piece that we finance and then turn over to the City of Pearland to operate is the storm sewer system. During Hurricane Harvey, the storm sewers financed by MUD 26 were able to handle an unprecedented amount of rainfall. The amount of rainfall and the potential for destructive items to enter the systems can cause problems that cannot be seen from the street or via simple optical inspection. MUD 26 has hired Camino Services to “go underground” and detect problem areas. This preventative maintenance project is commonly referred as “lamping.”

The district’s engineer, LJA Engineering, assigns key locations to be reviewed; then Camino Services creates high-resolution digital media of the storm sewer system locations.  These images, reviewed by both parties, are used to determine if damage has occurred.

If you notice areas of slow drainage, please notify us through the “Contact us” page on this website.

Our website also contains meeting minutes that provide additional information and the discussions of the board members and consultants. Brazoria County MUD 26 meets the first Tuesday of every month at 11:00 a.m. in Greenway Plaza area.  Come take a work break and have lunch with us. All residents are invited to attend.

 

Clearing on SCR Nature Trail

During the most recent MUD meeting a resident asked about the clearing on the SCR nature trail. This would be the area next to the park south of Clear Creek, east side adjacent to Kingsley.

The City of Pearland let us know that there is a habitat restoration project in the area. They removed some invasive species including tallow trees.

If there are additional questions please let us know.
