What is a Water District?

A water district is a local government entity—a special district–that provides water and sewer service and even roads, and other, limited services that cities provide.

In 2020, AWBD began developing its AWBD GIS System (AGISS), with help from LJA. We offer two applications for you to use. One is open to the public and it allows the user to quickly find information on Districts in the state of Texas. The other is a member’s only more robust application powered by data from the TCEQ, AWBD, and AWBD members.

Laws & Regulations

Water districts efficiently, effectively, and continuously provide essential services, including water, wastewater, and drainage, to millions of Texans.
