The District was created as a water control and improvement district on June 18, 1969 by an act of the 61st Legislature, as a conservation and reclamation district pursuant to the authority of section 59 of Article XVI of the Constitution of Texas. By order of the Texas Water Commission, dated March 6, 1979, the District was converted to a municipal utility district. The District operates under the authority of Chapters 49 and 54 of the Texas Water Code.

The District contains approximately 551.7836 acres (but who's counting?) located 16 miles northwest of the central business district of the City of Houston, at the intersection of Eldridge Road and West Little York Road. The District was created to provide water, sewer, and drainage service to the land within the District. The District owns two water plants, one waste water treatment plant, and all the underground water, sewer, and drainage facilities required to serve the District. The District utility construction was financed by the sale of 5 bond issues. Horsepen Bayou MUD is governed by a five member Board of Directors elected to 4 year terms.
