Brushy Creek MUD Update to Brushy Bend Subdivision Water Customers

The following email was sent by the General Manager of Brushy Creek MUD on November 3, 2015

Dear Homeowner:

The purpose of this correspondence is to provide a status report regarding recent developments that may result in a change in your water service provider.

As you may recall, the District’s engineering consultants previously recommended that the District replace the water transmission lines within Brushy Bend Subdivision in order to reduce maintenance costs, reduce water leaks, and to improve water system volumes and pressures for residents in the Subdivision.   The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) approved a $2,425,000 loan to fund the waterline replacement project The cost of the paying the debt service on the TWDB loan would have increased the monthly base rate for Brushy Bend residents to approximately $100. A number of residents raised concerns about the cost and asked the Board to consider alternatives.

As a result of concerns raised by Brushy Bend customers, the Board requested proposals from other utility providers to acquire the Brushy Bend public water system. Aqua Texas, Inc. was the only company that submitted a purchase proposal, and the Board has been in negotiations with Aqua since February 2015. In October, an Asset Purchase Agreement was approved providing for the sale and conveyance of the Brushy Bend public water system assets by the District to Aqua Texas, Inc. The contract has not yet been signed.

The sale and conveyance of the public water system assets to Aqua Texas, Inc. will likely not be completed until next year (2016) assuming both parties sign the contract. At that time, the District would furnish a wholesale water supply to Aqua Texas, so the quality of your water will not change. The retail water rates charged by Aqua to Brushy Bend customers will be identical to the existing rates charged by the District, and will be fixed for a number of years. Any future replacement of the water transmission lines in Brushy Bend would be shared by thousands of Aqua customers, and would not increase customer rates in the same way as would be the case if the District undertakes the project.

In the event the proposed Asset Purchase Agreement is goes forward, we will continue to provide periodic updates, and more information, to Brushy Bend customers.

Questions may be forwarded to:, or call (512) 255-7871 option 1, or see our website at

BCMUD General Manager

Brushy Creek MUD Proposed Improvements to BBP Water Distribution System

To:          Brushy Bend Park HOA Members and Property Owners

From:    Brushy Bend Park HOA BOD

Subj:      Brushy Creek MUD Proposed Improvements to BBP Water Distribution System

Dear BBP HOA Members and Property Owners:

During the 2nd and 3rd quarters of this year the BBP HOA Board of Directors met with BC MUD management several times concerning the MUD’s proposed improvements to our water distribution system. In August results of a technical study conducted by BC MUD’s consulting firm Halff Associates were reviewed with board members. The report outlined BBP water demand projections along with system improvements that address the MUD’s capacity and reliability concerns. During the August meeting the MUD representative asked for feedback and comments regarding the MUD’s report and proposed phasing of improvements. These were provided by the BBP Board of Directors along with a list of questions related to project costs and financing alternatives. The MUD representative took our feedback and questions back to an internal meeting with MUD directors and developed a proposed plan for system improvements.  BC MUD would like to discuss this proposed plan with BBP property owners in a January meeting. Please look for a meeting notice from the BC MUD concerning a presentation of the proposed plan in the next several weeks.
