The West Harris County Regional Water Authority was created by HB 1842, introduced by Rep. Callegari and sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Jon Lindsay. The bill was approved by the 77th Texas Legislature, signed into law by Governor Perry on May 28, 2001, and immediately went into effect. The City of Katy consented to the creation of the Authority on May 21, 2001, and the City of Houston consented on June 6, 2001.

The WHCRWA was created to “accomplish the purposes of Section 59, Article XVI, of the Texas Constitution, including the acquisition and provision of surface water and groundwater for residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and other uses, the reduction of groundwater withdrawals, the conservation, preservation, protection, recharge, and prevention of waste of groundwater, and of groundwater reservoirs or their subdivisions, the control of subsidence caused by withdrawal of water from those groundwater reservoirs or their subdivisions, and other public purposes stated in the act.”

Water Loss Audit and Leak Detection Workshops

The Texas Water Development Board will be providing two Water Loss Audit and Leak Detection Workshops in the Houston area. The workshops provide retail public water suppliers the opportunity to learn about how water loss audits can help them implement effective water loss control programs, how to use TWDBs online data collection system to submit audits and how to successfully account for water use and loss. Also included in the workshop is a hands-on session working on a water loss audit and an introduction to TWDBs leak detection equipment loan program. The workshops are approved for 4 hours of continuing education credits for licensed water operators through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
