We can help communities plan water systems when new growth and development is happening. If you are a developer, business owner or other entity that would like to extend water infrastructure to a new project either within or near an existing service area, this is the place to start. We are committed to providing an easy, efficient process to help bring water resources where and when needed. 

We have professionals located across the state who are available to address questions related to current or future projects. 

If your project is within our existing service area, these resources will help guide you through the process:
