Recent Correspondence Between NTMWD and RCH
October 05, 2023
Dear RCH Members,
We believe in transparency and open communication with our valued members. In this spirit, we would like to provide you with our most recent correspondence with the North Texas Municipal Water District. Please see the links to the letters and their respective summaries below.
Firstly, we have received a letter from NTMWD, which acknowledges RCH Water Supply Corporation's request to become a direct customer. NTMWD has expressed the need for further clarification regarding the nature of this request, particularly in relation to the potential supply of water to Aqua Texas, Inc., as part of a transfer anticipated in 2024. NTMWD has also underscored the importance of understanding any opposition or disputes surrounding this transfer, as well as the requirement for NTMWD's consent for the transfer of customer contracts. We want to assure you that we are actively working to address these concerns and provide the necessary information to NTMWD for their consideration of our request for water service.
RCH Water Supply Corporation has taken decisive steps by terminating agreements with Aqua Texas, Inc. This includes the Asset Purchase Agreement and the Amended and Restated Operation and Maintenance Services Agreement. Following this termination, Aqua Texas, Inc. will continue to operate our water supply system for an additional 60 days. After this transition period, all operations will be managed directly by RCH. We have also authorized the hiring of a general manager and support staff to oversee our system when Aqua's involvement ends. This strategic move is aimed at ensuring the long-term water security of our region, and we plan to hire the general manager in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we strive to enhance the stability and resilience of RCH Water Supply Corporation for years to come.
RCH Board President
