What is the relationship between the City of Benbrook and Benbrook Water Authority?

While we work closely with the City of Benbrook on various city projects, Benbrook Water Authority (BWA) is independent of the City of Benbrook. We provide water supply, treatment, and distribution, as well as wastewater collection services to the residents of Benbrook. A Board of Directors, elected by the citizens of Benbrook, governs us. Water and wastewater revenues, user charges, and impact fees fund the BWA operations.
