You’ll notice that there is always a charge for “NHCRWA” included on your monthly water/sewer billing statement. This is for the groundwater pumpage fees of the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “NHCRWA”) that the District is required to collect on the amount of water you use each month.

Currently, the NHCRWA pumpage fee rate is $4.25 per 1,000 gallons of water usage. The District adds a small fee to cover leakages, water loss and meter errors for a total current fee of $4.68/1,000 gallons of water usage. Effective April 1, 2021, the Authority will increase its fee by $0.35, for a total fee of $4.60 per 1,000 gallons of water usage. With the addition of the District’s fee, the new total amount will be $5.03 per 1,000 gallons of water usage.
