Parks & Recreation
Spring Creek Utility District operates two public parks for your enjoyment.
We encourage you to visit them at your convenience.
Fox Spring Park
Corner of Fox View & Brookchase Dr., Spring TX 77386
The District owns and operates Fox Spring Park, which was constructed with District general funds and a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. This park includes a walking/jogging path, multipurpose fields, children playground, picnic area and a pond with fishing pier. This park is adjacent to the DD 6 channel which is bordered by walking/cycling trails on each side. The trails go all the way to Spring Creek.
Lockeridge Farms Storm Water Park
28600 block of Lockeridge Springs Dr, Spring, TX 77386
The Lockeridge Farms storm water Park has recently been rehabilitated and a concrete walking/jogging path with benches has been built around it. At the same time, a project to restore a self-sustaining habitat for birds and wildlife with native plants has been initiated. The project is a work in progress that will take two to three years to fully realize. Over the next few years these plants will send roots deep into the earth and help to both stabilize the slopes of the pond and create a self-sustaining mini-habitat for birds and wildlife.
The District is currently served by four (4) water plants:
- Spring Creek Utility District Water Plant No. 1 ("SCUD WP 1") includes a 1,200 gallons per minute ("gpm") well, a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, two (2) 20,000 gallon hydropneumatic pressure tanks, booster pumps with a combined capacity of 3,800 gpm and an auxiliary power generator capable of running the entire plant.
- Spring Creek Utility District Water Plant No. 2 ("SCUD WP 2") includes 1,203 gpm well, a 210,000 gallon ground storage tank, a 15,000 gallon hydropneumatic pressure tank, booster pumps with a combined capacity of 2,000 gpm and an auxiliary power generator capable of running the entire plant.
- The District also shares capacity in Legends Ranch Water Plant No. 1 ("LR WP 1") with Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 89 ("MC MUD 89"). LR WP 1 consists of a 1,050 gpm well, two (2) 212,000 gallon ground storage tanks, two (2) 15,000 gallon hydropneumatic pressure tanks, booster bumps with a combined capacity of 3,500 gpm, and an auxiliary power generator. The District currently owns 56% of the capacity in LR WP 1.
- The District also shares Legends Ranch Water Plant No. 2 ("LR WP 2") with MC MUD 88 and MC MUD 89 , which includes two (2) wells with a combined capacity of 2,794 gpm, two (2) ground storage tank with a combined capacity of 434,000 gallons, three (3) 15,000 gallon hydropneumatic pressure tanks, booster pumps with a combined capacity of 5,150 gpm, and an auxiliary power generator. The District owns 79.8% of the capacity in certain components in LR WP 2.
The District owns a combined total water plant capacity capable of serving approximately 4,139 equivalent single family connections (“ESFCs”) between SCUD WP1, SCUD WP2, LR WP1 and LR WP2.
The District has three (3) emergency interconnect agreements: Rayford Road Municipal Utility District, Southern Montgomery County Municipal Utility District, and Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 89. The emergency interconnect with Rayford Road Municipal Utility District and Southern Montgomery County Municipal Utility District are normally closed. The emergency interconnect agreement with Montgomery County MUD 89 is normally left open as part of the shared water plant.
The District owns and operates a 1,500,000 gallon per day ("gpd") permanent wastewater treatment plant. With the recent expansion, the District currently has wastewater treatment capacity to serve approximately 6,122 ESFCs.
Nine (9) lift stations, scattered around the district, bring waste water to the wastewater treatment plant.
All lift stations, as well as the waste water treatment plant, are equipped with auxiliary power generators capable of operating the system in case of power outages.
Storm Drainage Facilities
The natural drainage divide in the District is defined approximately by Rayford Road.
West of Rayford Road, stormwater runoff is conveyed via a curb and gutter system into Montgomery County Drainage District No. 6 (DD 6) drainage channel which ultimately discharges into Spring Creek southwest of the District and then into the San Jacinto River.
East of Rayford Road, stormwater runoff is conveyed via a curb and gutter system into a regional drainage and detention facility, north of the District. Water from the detention pond is pumped into the Stokes Gully which ultimately discharges into the San Jacinto River. The costs to operate and maintain this facility is shared with MC MUD 88 and MC MUD 89. The facility is managed by Spring Creek UD.
The part of the District located south of the Riley Fuzzel Rd (or Grand Parkway) has a dedicated detention facility. Water from the detention pond ultimately discharges to the San Jacinto River.
