HPW - 20WR245 – Petition Addition (0.35) Porter Municipal Utility District

Agenda Item#: 24.


ORDINANCE consenting to the addition of 0.35 acres of land to PORTER MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT, for inclusion in the district


SUBJECT: Petition for the City’s consent to the addition of 0.35 acres to Porter Municipal Utility District.


RECOMMENDATION: Petition for the City’s consent to the addition of 0.35 acres to Porter Municipal Utility District be approved.


SPECIFIC EXPLANATION: Porter Municipal Utility District (the “District”) was created through the TCEQ in 1978, and currently consists of 3995.8507 acres within Montgomery County.  The District is within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston (the “City”) and has petitioned the City for consent to add 0.35 acres of vacant land, proposed be developed as commercial property, to the District.  The proposed annexation tract is located in the vicinity of FM 1314, Valley Ranch Parkway, Azalea District Boulevard, and Partner’s Way.  The addition of land to the District does not release it from the City’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.


The Utility District Review Committee has evaluated the application with respect to wastewater collection and treatment, potable water distribution, storm water conveyance, and other public services.


The District has a wastewater collection system and treatment facility.  The annexation tract will be provided with wastewater treatment by the Porter Municipal Utility District Wastewater Treatment Facility.  This regional plant also provides wastewater treatment to Woodridge Municipal Utility District.   Potable water is provided by the District.


The nearest major drainage facility for Porter Municipal Utility District is Ben's Branch, which flows into Lake Houston. Ben's Branch is within the San Jacinto River watershed. The proposed annexation tract is not within the 100 or 500 year floodplain. 


By executing the Petition for Consent, the District has acknowledged that all plans for the construction of water conveyance, wastewater collection, and storm water collection systems within the District must be approved by the City prior to their construction. 


The Utility District Review Committee recommends that the subject petition be approved.
