Pecos County Water Control and Improvement District #1 (PCWCID) is pleased to announce that we will be able to add new taps in some areas of the district that have sufficient infrastructure (pipes) but we have been unable to install due to insufficient water supply.  Rules from TCEQ now allow the PCWCID to purchase water, an action previously prohibited. We are entering into an agreement with the City of Fort Stockton to purchase supplemental water, only residential request at this time.


If you live in the water district or are interested in obtaining a tap, please come by the PCWCID office or call 432-336-3977 and discuss your situation with General Manager, Billy Gonzales.  We currently are not adding commercial taps at this time. There are conditions and restrictions.  As a general rule we feel that the district has greater potential for taps from Hwy 18 and West.  However, there are several places over the entire infrastructure that are potentially eligible for a tap. The cost of this feasibility study is $100 and is non refundable. After you have indicated the area that you are interested, the water district engineer will review the request location. If the engineer reports that we have the potential to install the tap, the new customer service agreement will need to be completed. There are fees associated with a new tap, cost of tap $1300 plus the first month water usage fee of approximately $200. Water will be sold at $4.75 per 1000 gallons. This rate is higher than current customers, this rate is currently being charged by the city. Payment arrangements can be made to make installments for tap. All regulations of the district will be followed for all customers.


PCWCID has been the recipient of a loan plus grant to upgrade our system. Hopefully within 2 years the infrastructure upgrade will be completed. At that time water rates for all customers will be the same. Commercial taps can then be installed as feasible.


Please come by the office or call and see if we can install a tap for you.





Billy Gonzales, General Manager
