The Many Different Water Districts in Texas
In the midst of doing many water resource projects (Including Waste Water) in South/Central Texas and in establishing CCN. I began to realize that there are many different types of “districts” within South/Central Texas. Although, I have 18 years of experience in working with many types of districts I didn’t truly understand what made each district type unique. This article was very helpful in helping me understand why there are different types of districts, and what makes each district type necessary and unique.
CCN – A Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) is issued by the Texas Commission on
Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and authorizes a utility to provide water and/or sewer
service to a specific area. The CCN obligates the water or sewer retail public utility to
provide continuous and adequate service to every customer who requests service in that
area. The maps and digital (spatial) data provided in the new Water Utilities Map Viewer
delineate the official CCN service areas and CCN facility lines issued by the TCEQ. www.tceq.texas.gov
