Notice of WHCRWA Fee Increase

At the Authority’s Board of Directors meeting held on November 8, 2017, at 20111 Saums Road, Katy, Texas 77449, the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Authority”) adopted increased fees in order to fund the massive water supply projects that are needed to meet the Harris Galveston Subsidence District (“HGSD”) groundwater reduction regulations and to avoid the $8.75 per 1,000 gallons fine that the HGSD imposes for non-compliance.
