Original (4/15/2020):
As Encanto Real Utility District (Encanto Real UD) continues to make every effort possible to keep residents monthly water rates as low as possible, the district wanted to notify residents as to the increase in the surface water fees imposed by the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA). The rate change went into effect April 1st 2020, and residents will see it reflected in bills later in the month once meters are read.

Those NHCRWA groundwater surcharges has increased from $3.85 per thousand gallons of water used to $4.25 per thousand gallons. The District adds a 10% surcharge for water accountability and usage offset, so residents will see a $4.675 per thousand gallons charge on their bill.
