The District is responsible for acquiring and delivering over 2.7 billion gallons of quality water every year to its customers traveling through 350 miles of pipe. Part of the journey includes lab analysis (over 780 tests/month) and filtration treatment at the Klein Water Treatment Facility. The water passes through pump stations, valves and meters throughout our 65 sq-mi service area before it arrives at your home or business.
We need to remember that the value we place on convenience, safety and reliability comes with a price tag. The majority of funding to provide water and wastewater services comes from revenues generated from customer usage.
It may surprise you to know that our water bills reflect the best deal among all the services we currently receive. Priced at about one cent per gallon, that penny includes purchasing, treatment and delivery costs to provide quality water to you 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week.The District never takes for granted the value of your water and the important role that it plays in our everyday lives.
Although the District’s water and wastewater pricing will increase 5% in 2015, we continue to strive everyday to provide the best quality services to our customers at a cost that is based on keeping your water safe while creating a sustainable resource well into the future.
