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 is governed by 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 water treatment plant located on Lake Bridgeport. The water treatment plant (WTP) has the capability of treating 10 million gallons of water a day (MGD), which supplies safe potable drinking water to the distribution system. The distribution system is made up of roughly 460 miles of water line, 4 pump stations, 3 ground storage tanks, 3 elevated storage tanks, and 2 stand pipes. The distribution system serves approximately 9,000+ residential and commercial connections, as well as 7 wholesale connections.
