Introduction & Background

Hurst Creek Municipal Utility District was created by the Texas Water Commission in 1979 to provide water, sewer and drainage services to approximately 700 acres in western Travis County, Texas. As a political subdivision of the State of Texas, the District is retail, non-profit public utility with the rights, powers and responsibilities as outlined in Chapter 54 of the Texas Water Code.

Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

In 2003 the Texas Legislature mandated the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the successor agency to the Texas Water Commission, to adopt rules requiring all public water utilities appropriating more than 1,000-acre feet of surface water to develop water conservation plans with five and ten year goals.

This document examines the District's water usage for the past 5 years and proposes 5 and 10-year goals for conservation.
