Our goal is to provide safe, clean, sparkling water to all of our residents!
Walnut Creek was orginally founded approximately 1962 as a Water Supply Corperation, and was later converted to a Special Utility District in 1992. Since becoming a Special Utility District Walnut Creek is a governmental entity which is recognized as a political subdivision of the State of Texas. Therefore the District operates much like a city would with three (3) major differences:
- The District has a board of directors instead of a city council. However the directors are publicly elected individuals that live in the District's boundaries.
- The District only provides potable water services to its customers.
- The District cannot levy taxes.
Walnut Creek Special Utility District is a surface water system with a 6 MGD water treatment plant located on Lake Bridgeport. The District supplies rural residents of Parker and Wise counties with potable water conveniences similar to that found it more urban areas. The District provides water services to approximately 8,000 connections and several of the surrounding cities.
