About the District

District’s Purpose

Ranch at Cypress Creek Municipal Utility District No. 1, formerly Williamson-Travis Counties Water Control & Improvement District No. 1B, was created as a conservation and reclamation district under Article XVI, Section 59 of the Texas Constitution, and operates under Chapters 49 and 54, Texas Water Code, as amended. The District is obligated to provide water, wastewater and drainage services to the property within its boundaries.

The District consists of approximately 347 acres in southwestern Williamson County and northwestern Travis County, the majority of which has been developed for single-family residences. Additionally, the District contains acreage set aside for detention ponds and major rights-of-way. The City of Cedar Park has committed to provide wholesale water and wastewater service to the District and the District has contracted with the City to manage the operation of its utility system. If you have problems with water or wastewater, then contact the City of Cedar Park.

In November, 1998, the District applied to the Texas Natural Resource and Conservation Commission for authorization to convert from a water control and improvement district to a municipal utility district. The Commission issued an order approving the conversion and change of the District’s name to “Ranch at Cypress Creek Municipal Utility District No. 1” on December 20, 1999. The District approved a resolution converting the District to a municipal utility district and changing the District’s name on February 15, 2000. The conversion enables the District to exercise additional powers, including the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
