Overview

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) has developed a statewide public water system service area mapping application called the Texas Water Service Boundary Viewer (Viewer) through a grant from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Availability and Use Science Program. While several water system mapping applications exist in the state, they do not necessarily represent the actual retail water service areas or include all the public water systems (PWS) within the state. This mapping application strives to collect and provide the most up-to-date and best data available on the water service areas for all community PWS within Texas.

  • For Editor: Partnering with the Water User Survey program each year, water systems are asked to update or verify their service boundaries to reflect the current retail water service areas using the Viewer application. The Viewer application for editors is accessible through the Water Use Survey and only for qualified personnel with access to water use survey by sigining in Okta and the Viewer applicaiton can edit boundaries. Chrome is the preferred browser.

  • For Public: The application will also be available to the public to view the water service boundaries and related reports including historical water use and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality public water system information. No sign in is needed.
