About Us

Our goal is to provide safe, clean, sparkling water to all of our residents!

Walnut Creek was orginally founded approximately 1962 as a Water Supply Corperation, and was later converted to a Special Utility District in 1992.  Since becoming a Special Utility District Walnut Creek is a governmental entity which is recognized as a political subdivision of the State of Texas.  Therefore the District operates much like a city would with three (3) major differences:

  1. The District is governed by a board of directors instead of a city council.  However, the directors are publicly elected individuals that live in the District's boundaries.
  2. The District only provides potable water services to its customers.
  3. The District cannot levy taxes.

Walnut Creek Special Utility District is a surface water system with a water treatment plant located on Lake Bridgeport.  The water treatment plant (WTP) has the capability of treating 10 million gallons of water a day (MGD), which supplies safe potable drinking water to the distribution system.  The distribution system is made up of roughly 460 miles of water line, 4 pump stations, 3 ground storage tanks, 3 elevated storage tanks, and 2 stand pipes.  The distribution system serves approximately 9,000+ residential and commercial connections, as well as 7 wholesale connections.
