About Willow Fork Drainage District:

Willow Fork Drainage District ("the District") was created by an Order of the Texas Water Commission, predecessor to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), dated February 20, 1985. The District contains approximately 5,718 acres of land, of which approximately 5,247 are located within Fort Bend County, Texas, and approximately 471 acres are located within Harris County, Texas. The District generally covers the areas known as Cinco Ranch, Kelliwood, Canyon Gate, Falcon Ranch, and Parkway Oaks and is located entirely within the exclusive extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston. The rights, powers, privileges, authority, and functions of the District are established by the general laws of the State of Texas pertaining to water control and improvement districts, particularly Chapters 49 and 51 of the Texas Water Code. The District was created to finance the acquisition and/or construction of major outfall drainage facilities, trunk storm sewer facilities, and related projects. The District has financed its construction of those drainage facilities with the proceeds from unlimited tax bonds. The District also has the power to construct and finance park and recreational facilities.  The District has adopted a park plan and intends to finance components of its park plan with the proceeds from unlimited tax bonds authorized by the voters for such purpose.
