RAIN BARREL GIVEAWAY 2020
Fort Bend County MUD No. 50 (the “MUD”) is committed to helping you save water! As part of its ongoing water conservation program, the MUD is giving away a rain barrel to one resident in each of the six neighborhoods within its boundaries. Rain barrels collect and store rainwater — providing a free source of non-potable water that can be used in numerous ways including watering your flowers and lawn or even washing your car.
In order to enter the drawing for a free rain barrel, please visit the “Contact Us” link on the left sidebar and submit the following information:
Your email address (to be contacted in the event you are a winner); and
The neighborhood in which you live. Please choose from the following neighborhoods:
West Park Lakes;
Grand Meadows at Parkway Lakes;
Club Estates at Parkway Lakes;
The Meadows at Parkway Lakes; or
Grand Ridge Crossing.
Entries must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 7, 2020, for consideration. Entrants must own property within the boundaries of the neighborhood indicated on their submission, as evidenced by an active service account with the MUD. The MUD’s Board of Directors will randomly select one winner via blind drawing from each of the six neighborhoods indicated above at its regular monthly meeting held on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. All selections of the MUD’s Board of Directors shall be deemed final. Winners will be contacted via e-mail on or about Wednesday, December 9, 2020, to coordinate delivery of the rain barrel. In the event that a winning entrant does not respond to the winner notification within 5 business days, the District shall no longer be obligated to award a rain barrel to that entrant. In the event that no submissions are received for a particular neighborhood, the District’s Board of Directors will combine all non-winning entries submitted for all of the neighborhoods and randomly select winners from the remaining entries via blind drawing. In no event shall the MUD be obligated to award more than six rain barrels nor shall an entrant be eligible for more than one award. It is each winner’s responsibility to comply with any applicable homeowner’s association rules related to the placement and use of a rain barrel.
