HPW - 20WR250 – Petition Addition (1.7159) Spring Creek Utility District

Agenda Item#: 35.


ORDINANCE consenting to the addition of 1.7159 acres of land to SPRING CREEK UTILITY DISTRICT, for inclusion in the district


SUBJECT: Petition for the City’s consent to the addition of two (2) tracts of land totaling 1.7159 acres to Spring Creek Utility District.


RECOMMENDATION: Petition for the City’s consent to the addition two (2) tracts of land totaling 1.7159 acres to Spring Creek Utility District  be approved.


SPECIFIC EXPLANATION: Spring Creek Utility District  (the “District”) was created through the TCEQ in 1971, and currently consists of 1,052.5729 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 two (2) tracts of mixed land totaling 1.7159 acres, proposed to be developed as commercial property, to the District. The proposed annexation tracts are located in the vicinity of Riley Fuzzel Road, Interstate 45, Northridge Forest Drive, and Brinham Woods Drive. 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 tracts will be provided with wastewater treatment by Spring Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility. Potable water is provided by the District.


The nearest major drainage facility for Spring Creek Utility District is Spring Creek, which flows into the San Jacinto River, and finally Lake Houston. The proposed annexation tracts are not within the 100 year floodplain, but tract 1 and tract 2 are within the 500 year floodplain (95% & 50%) respectively.


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.
