Welcome to Cinco Municipal Utility District 8

Mission
The District's mission is to provide water and sewer services along with residential trash collection to customers within the district's boundaries. The District is one of only two Water Smart districts named through the Association of Water Board Directors in Cinco Ranch. The District has been a Water Smart district since 2008.

Best Trash
Effective September 2nd, Cinco MUD 8 will now be using Best Trash for trash/recycling pickup. Tuesdays/Fridays will remain trash pickup days. However, recycling will now be collected on Fridays beginning September 5th, not the 2nd. Please leave your current WCA recycle bin at the curb Tuesday, August 26th for recycle and bin pickup by WCA. Best Trash will be bringing a new recycle bin before the first September pickup.

How much water do you really use?

Here’s how to identify leaks around your home:
• Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.
• Winter months are the prime time to check water use and see if you may have a leak. If a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons/month in the winter, you probably have leaks!

Here’s how you can address leaks found at home:
Check for leaks. Look for dripping faucets, showerheads, sprinklers, and other fixtures. Also check for toilets with silent leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring into the tank and seeing if it appears in the bowl before you flush. Don’t forget to check irrigation systems and spigots too.
Twist and tighten hose and pipe connections. To save more water without a noticeable difference in flow in your bathroom faucet, twist on a WaterSense labeled faucet aerator.
Replace the fixture if necessary. Look for WaterSense labeled models, which are independently certified to use 20 percent less water and perform as well as or better than standard models.
As a WaterSense partner concerned with preserving our nation’s water supply, Cinco MUD 8 can help you learn more.
