Welcome to HCWCID #156
HCWCID #156 (referred to as DISTRICT), a sub-district of CLCWA, operates in accordance with Texas Revised Civil Statutes, Title 22, Article 717r. The DISTRICT’s formation and its responsibilities are established under an Exclusion Contract with CLCWA. DISTRICT owns the water, sanitary sewer and drainage infrastructure contained within its boundaries (see DISTRICT Map). Infrastructure for these services was purchased from Friendswood Development in 2001-2002 with funds obtained in two bond issues. Debt was refinanced in 2013 to take advantage of lower interest rates; debt at the beginning of current fiscal year is $1.78 million. Full retirement of debt is scheduled for FY ending August 2021 (see Debt Refunding Schedule).
DISTRICT provides water and sewer services for the 373 residences, one private sprinkler system and eight public areas maintained by Community Association; these services are purchased from CLCWA at rates that are 1.5 times the rates charged to CLCWA’s retail customers. Billing rates to DISTRICT customers is approximately 1.26 times CLCWA rates; the difference is made up with tax revenues. CLCWA also handles billing and payment processing and maintains the DISTRICT’s facilities on a reimbursable cost basis.
