Important information about your Water
The water district has joined the resource
management plan (WRAP) of the San Jacinto
River Authority to achieve a (30%) thirty
percent reduction in groundwater usage
is required by the Lone Star Groundwater
Conservation District of all large volume
users in Montgomery County.
Joining this WRAP will cost the district $1.25
per 1000 gallons of water we produce
beginning in September 2012. Due to water
we produce for flushing dead ends and
water quality issues we produce slightly more
than we sell. We have added 10% to the
pass through charge to cover this production.
The amount you will see on your bill will
be $1.37 per thousand gallons.
At some time in the future when we actually
start converting the county to surface
water this cost will go up. Present projections
are somewhere around $2.00 per
thousand gallons in 2016 when the surface
water treatment plant goes online.
The county as a whole is using more water
than our underground aquifers can
provide. Over production of these resources
will eventually cause them to deplete to
the point they can no longer supply the
counties needs. The present plan is for The
Woodlands, Conroe, and several areas along
Highway 45 to over convert to surface
water while allowing other areas to remain on
well water. These costs are assessed so
that all users will share equally in the cost of
conversion and acquisition of our water
supplies. We believe this is the most cost
effective way for our water district to meet
this conversion deadline.

Water is our most precious natural resource and something
that most of us take for granted. We are now increasingly
becoming aware of the importance of water to our survival
and its limited supply
We pride ourselves in making every effort to maintain this
same quality of water for our future generation.
Unfortunately this comes with a cost.
As an incentive to help conserve our resource, and to keep
these charges as low as possible, the district has
restructured the billing procedure. You will see the
following rate change from the flat rate of .77 cents on your
bill to the following calculation of $0.078 cents per thousand
gallons registered through your water meter.
6,000 gallons of metered water -6,000 x 7.8% or (0.078) = $.47 cents
9,000 gallons of metered water -9,000 x 7.8% or (0.078) = $.70 cents
15,000 gallons of metered water -15,000 x 7.8% or (0.078) = $1.17
