About Us

Where does our drinking water come from?

We purchase our water from Bell County  WCID #1.  Our drinking water comes from Lake Belton, a surface water supply.  The purpose of the lake is flood control and conservation (water supply).

The District also owns and operates a wastewater treatment facility with a total capacity of 675 thousand gallons per day which serves the Nolanville area.

Utility Bills.

Water meters are read around the 18th – the 20th of every month and bills are mailed to customers at the end of every month.  Water/Sewer/Trash Bills are due on the 10th of every month. Customers then have 10 days to pay their water bill and are responsible for the timely payment of the account, regardless of whether the bill is received or not.  If the bill is not paid by the due date, a penalty of $10.00 is applied to the account.  Water service will be disconnected if the payment is not received in full by the extended due date, which is the 15th of every month.  If the water is disconnected for non-pay there will be a fee of $25.00 to reconnect service.  There will be a $50.00 after hours reconnect fee for services reconnected after 5:00 p.m. and on weekends.  If the water is disconnected for non-pay and the meter is turned on by someone other than a Bell County WCID #3 employee, there will be an additional fee of $50.00 for tampering for the first offense, and an additional $50.00 for each subsequent offense. Once proper payment is made for the non-pay disconnect, please wait for a Bell County WCID #3 employee to restore services.
