The consolidated district is known as Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 168. The Board of Directors held its first meeting on April 7, 1979 and the first bonds were sold in 1982.
The District’s primary activities include construction, maintenance and operation of water, sewer, drainage and recreational facilities.
