Welcome to the AMUD Web Site.
AMUD was created in 1982 to serve the DeCordova/Acton, Pecan and Indian Harbor residents. Acton Municipal Utility District is a non-profit governmental entity directed by five elected Officials.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulates water quality and wastewater services. AMUD's water quality meets or exceeds all Federal and State drinking water quality standards.
The District provides water to all District members, and wastewater to District members in DeCordova Bend Estates and areas of Pecan Plantation and Acton. Over the years we have grown from a customer base of 2000 households to a current customer base of 6800 households.
Our water is supplied from 22 wells located throughout the District and is supplemented with treated surface water from Lake Granbury, (water treated by the BRPUA at the SWATS Plant here in Acton).
CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT
The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) identifies the source of your drinking water, treatment used to purify the water, any contaminants that have been identified in the water, and what the potential health effects of those contaminates are. It will also identify where you can get additional information about your water supply and how you can become involved in protecting water sources.

Notification of change from Free Chlorine to Choramines in AMUD's drinkin water - 2013 March 30
On Saturday, March 30, 2013, the Acton Municipal Utility District (AMUD) will be changing the disinfectant that we use from chlorine to chloramines in all parts of AMUDís water distribution system. This change is intended to benefit our customers by reducing the levels of disinfection byproducts; (DBPs) in the system, while still providing protection from waterborne disease.
However, the change to chloramines can cause problems to persons dependent on dialysis machines. A condition known as hemolytic anemia can occur if the disinfectant is not completely removed from the water that used for the dialysate. Consequently, the pretreatment scheme used for the dialysis units must include some means, such as a charcoal filter, for removing the chloramines prior to this date. Medical facilities should also determine if additional precautions are required for other medical equipment.
In addition, chloraminated water may be toxic to fish. If you have a fish tank, please make sure that the chemicals or filters that you are using are designed for use in water that has been treated with chloramines. You may also need to change the type of filter that you use for the fish tank.
Please contact Greg Reynolds or Richard English at (817) 326-4720 with questions you may have.
