The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority and the Texas Water Alliance Limited have agreed to work together to evaluate groundwater resources for future development in the Texas Hill Country, according to a release issued Wednesday.
Texas Water Alliance is a wholly owned subsidiary of San Jose Water Corp. in San Jose, Calif.
The letter of intent, effective through Aug. 1., commits the agencies to work together exclusively to explore the development and delivery options to service areas.
TWA's service groundwater resources may total up to 15,000 acre-feet of water that may be used in the Canyon Lake Water Service Company service area.
The water service company surrounds Canyon Lake, located on the Guadalupe River in the Texas Hill Country. It serves about 22,500 customers, according to its website.
GBRA has been working to develop customers along the corridors of Interstate Highway 35 and state Highway 130.
The two companies may work together to supply water to customers in the region.
