The City of Mansfield and Johnson County SUD Announce Wholesale Water Agreement for Residents of Johnson County
Officials from the City of Mansfield and Johnson County Special Utility District (JCSUD) announced last week the signing of an amended wholesale water purchase agreement that will bring additional water to the cities and unincorporated areas of Johnson County. The wholesale water purchase agreement is a result of work that began in 2020.
As part of the amended agreement, the City of Mansfield will construct approximately 7,900 feet of new water transmission main line starting at JCSUD’s Metering Station on Chambers Drive near Mansfield. The new 30-inch water main will connect the City of Mansfield’s water distribution system to JCSUD’s northeast Pump Station at Broad Street in Mansfield.
“Today we are celebrating a partnership that is possible because of hard work and planning by the City of Mansfield and JCSUD,” said Pete Kampfer, JCSUD General Manager. “The new infrastructure improves wholesale water flow to JCSUD, and also enhances the service the City of Mansfield already provides to its residents in the area.”
JCSUD, based in Joshua, Texas, serves approximately 58,000 people in Johnson County. The City of Mansfield has agreed to provide up to 25 million gallons of water per day to JCSUD’s customers in Johnson County in the near future. JCSUD also uses a combination of well water from the Paluxy and Trinity aquifers and treated surface water purchased from the Brazos River Public Utility Authority in Granbury, Texas. JCSUD continues to plan to ensure our community has the water it needs both today and in the future.
