Most people do not know that drinking water is a limited and precious resource. Today, the water that we drink comes either from water wells or from surface water from our nearby lakes. Water wells are fed by the three major aquifers in the Texas upper Gulf Coast area. Over the last thirty years, the water in these aquifers has been declining, making it more difficult and expensive to develop ground water resources. Municipal Utility Districts in the Houston area have been required to make a conversion from ground water to surface water.
The North Harris County Regional Water Authority, The Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District and theWest Harris County Regional Water Authority were created for the purpose of developing and bringing surface water to the areas that they serve.
For several years, the North and West Authorities have supplemented the ground water from the wells with surface water that is supplied to consumers. Lone Star is working currently to provide surface water to their customers as well. All three of these water authorities have websites and are linked above. Please visit each site for more details relating to surface water and its future in the Houston Metropolitan area.
