The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) provides essential water, wastewater and solid waste disposal services to 1.7 million residents across 10 counties in the North Texas region. Working with a team of over 750 employees, the NTMWD builds, maintains, protects, stores and conserves regional water supplies; treats and delivers clean drinking water; collects, treats and disposes trash, sewage and other waste; and plans for future regional service needs.

Since inception, the NTMWD has collaborated with multiple North Texas cities and communities on the design and operation of their systems. This regional partnership has reduced costs, facilitated access to water, wastewater and solid waste services to communities large and small, and streamlined service delivery.

For more than 60 years, the NTMWD has operated responsibly, surpassing state and federal standards for water quality and environmental protection. We are committed to providing affordable, safe and reliable services to the people we serve.


NTMWD has been providing wholesale water services to communities in the region since 1956. As these communities have grown in population, the regional water system has grown in scope and complexity to reliably meet their needs.

Key Facts:

  • Constructing the first major reservoir (16,000+ acres) in Texas in over 30 years – Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir
  • Provide wholesale, treated water to about 80 cities, towns, communities, special utility and water districts
  • 370 million gallons per day (MGD) average raw water supply
  • 1,840 acre indirect reuse constructed wetland
  • 6 water treatment plants – 806+ MGD capacity
  • 575 miles of transmission pipelines
  • 9 raw water pump stations
  • 8 treated water pump stations
  • 77 city delivery points


In 1972, in response to requests from the cities and communities we serve, NTMWD expanded its services to include wastewater collection and treatment. Consolidating smaller, municipal wastewater plants into regional systems reduced costs for participating cities and streamlined operations.

Today, the effective treatment and purification of wastewater is a key way we are helping to meet the future water needs of the region.

Key Facts:

  • Operate 14 wastewater treatment plants (11 owned by NTMWD, including 4 regional plants)
  • 151+ million gallons per day (MGD) treatment capacity
  • 8 interceptor systems with 250+ miles of large-diameter pipelines and 23 lift stations

Solid Waste

In 1979, again due to city requests, NTMWD expanded its services to include solid waste disposal. Participating cities collect and deliver municipal solid waste to one of our three transfer stations or landfill located in Collin County. From the transfer stations, staff transport the waste to the regional landfill located in Melissa. Residents of participating cities also may drop off municipal solid waste at one of the transfer stations or landfill by showing proof of residency, with their city issued utility bill.

Key Facts:

  • 3 transfer stations
  • 3,295 combined permitted tons processed daily
  • 800,000+ tons/year accepted at landfill
