Government resources in Montgomery County
When it comes to utilities for homeowners, Montgomery County is served by several Municipal Utility Districts or MUDs. Many people who move to southeast Texas, including Montgomery County, have questions about MUDs. If you are moving here from a big city in another part of the country, then all of your utilities may have come through the city where you lived. It is like that in Houston, for example. However, in suburban and rural areas in southeast Texas MUDs tend to provide many of the utility services that we have come to rely upon. Drinking water, wastewater, sewage and drainage are all provided by MUDs.
