TO: Utility Districts; the Cities of Houston and Katy, Texas; Non-District/Non-City Well Owners within the West Harris County Regional Water Authority
The West Harris County Regional Water Authority’s (the “Authority”) Board of Directors is pleased to report that there will be no increase to the current Groundwater Reduction Plan Fee and the Surface Water Fee this January 1, 2024.
The Authority’s fees will continue to be utilized to fund the cost of constructing, operating, and maintaining the Authority’s current surface water supply system, as well as the capital costs associated with constructing the additional large-scale infrastructure projects needed to meet the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District’s groundwater reduction requirements. The Authority will continue to evaluate costs, population growth, and water demands, and the impacts of these factors on rates in the future.
The Authority thanks you for remaining strong partners to reduce land subsidence together and to ensure that our community has sufficient water supplies for decades to come.
