Regional Water Authorities
Regional water authorities construct and operate large-scale water infrastructure projects that deliver wholesale water to dozens of municipal water providers and facilitate compliance with subsidence district regulations requiring reduction of water well usage. ABHR represents the North Channel Water Authority, North Fort Bend Water Authority, and the West Harris County Regional Water Authority. These are legislatively created authorities that will provide surface water to serve hundreds of square miles in the Houston region.
ABHR attorneys provide legal services for water authorities, often including negotiation and preparation of water acquisition and supply contracts, negotiation of governmental issues with other political subdivisions, regulatory compliance, right-of-way acquisition, and bond counsel services related to infrastructure financings.
