Cities Request Water Rate Relief

Dec. 14, 2016 (Garland, Texas) – The Mayors of Garland, Mesquite, Plano and Richardson, in an unprecedented move, today announced that their cities are asking the Public Utility Commission (PUC) to conduct a review of their water rates with the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD).The cities are taking this action because the rates set by the NTMWD under the six-decade old water supply contract are discriminatory, are inconsistent with water conservation and are not in the public interest. As a result, the four cities have paid a total of $178 million for water they did not use.  Click HERE to see a video of the news conference.
