News Stream – September 2019

This month, we highlight the FY20 proposed budget and rates with information about key drivers including system expansion and infrastructure maintenance. Our annual fact sheet gives you a high-level overview of the upcoming budget scheduled for review and approval by the NTMWD Board of Directors at the September 26 regular board meeting. You can watch and share a short video about how water rates pay for #MoreThanWater.

We also take a look at the historic year for projects at the District. Maintaining, replacing and expanding infrastructure to serve a fast-growing population all contribute to this extremely active year. Learn more about the key drivers behind this budgetary rise, and how CIP funding needs are projected to be lower in the coming years.

September’s News Stream also includes shout-outs to our transport drivers and repair crews, a reminder to continue to conserve water with watering advice from WaterMyYard.org, the most recent WFAA Green Segment, Member City and Customer event listings, recent news and more.
