Water District cedes CCN to Mauriceville MUD

-The map area outlined in red is currently in the CCN (Certificate of Convenience) of Vidor’s Orange County Water Control and Improvement District #1 that the Mauriceville Municipal Utilities District wants to annex from the Vidor water district. The green area on the map is currently either inside of the boundaries (the black line with dots) of the Vidor Water District or assigned by a state agency as the OCWC&ID#1’s “extraterritorial area” or CCN. The Blue area on the map has been assigned by a state agency as the Mauriceville MUD’s “extraterritorial area” or CCN.

The Board of Directors of the Orange County Water Control & Improvement District #1 voted last week on Monday to cede a small portion of their Certificate of Convenience (CCN), to the Mauriceville Municipal Utilities District. A CCN is like an extra-territorial jurisdiction of a city outside of the City limit of a city. Only, in the case of a water district, that extra-territorial area must be designated by a state agency, in this case, The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

In March of this year the Brad Haeggquist, General Manager of the Mauriceville MUD, approached the OCWC&ID#1 Board of Directors, during their monthly Board of Directors meeting to ask the Board if they would relinquish a portion of the Water District’s CCN to allow the Mauriceville MUD to provide water and sewer services to potential customers who are not yet served by any water control and improvement district or any municipal utility district and whose properties lie outside of the Orange County Water Control and Improvement District #1 boundary, but in the OCWC&ID#1 state designated CCN area along the north side of I-10 from its intersection with Evangeline Drive east to Claiborne-West Park.
