Water Quality

The City’s water originates from Lake Bob Sandlin and seven deep-water wells. The water from Lake Bob Sandlin is treated by Northeast Texas Municipal Water District and is then blended with the treated water from the city’s seven deep-water wells that then provide metered water service and fire protection to the City’s residents.
