Pecan Grove MUD serves the Pecan Grove Plantation and Country Club and is an established, large residential neighborhood in Ft. Bend County, Texas on the northeast City Limits of Richmond, Texas, southwest of Houston. Ft. Bend Subsidence District has enacted water use regulations that require all significant groundwater users in the County to develop plans to reduce ground water use by 30 percent in 2013 and by 60 percent in 2025. This requirement is
driven by a rapidly increasing population creating increased demand on groundwater resources, with attendant subsidence in the areas with withdrawals exceeding recharge. Pecan Grove MUD entered into contract with Kimley-Horn and Associates for a Water Reuse Feasibility Study to determine the potential to improve the existing wastewater treatment plant to provide reclaimed water quality and to determine the associated cost.
