Larry's Toolbox

Water Conservation and FBMUD 142 Residents

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 142 (FBMUD 142), in conjunction with the North Fort Bend Water Authority and Larry the Talking Sprinkler, brings you a summary of District efforts and tips for water conservation.

Larry’s Toolbox was created to incentivize MUDs to conserve water,” says the NFBWA. The program consists of 11 initiatives, each worth a set number of points. If a MUD participates in enough point-earning initiatives, they will receive a discounted water rate the following year. As part of this collaboration, there are different programs in place for the district to practice or promote water conservation in the District.

As a resident, what can I do?

  • Sign up for a free W.I.S.E. Guys irrigation system evaluation! A licensed irrigator will inspect your irrigation system and make improvement recommendations that will elevate the system’s performance. In addition to this evaluation, residents will receive educational tips on proper controller scheduling and efficient irrigation. By signing up for this free service, you will also be entered into a monthly prize drawing! Click here to sign up!
  • Educate yourself on water conservation and your water bill. FBMUD 142 distributes conservation information in conjunction with your water bill throughout the year. Each water bill also has historical usage information to show residents how their water use has changed over time. The highest water users also receive a separate notification. Overall, education and awareness of the water we use helps prevent water loss due to leaks or other causes.
