Sugar Land, Texas — SouthWest Water Company—the second largest private water and wastewater utility company in Texas—will begin doing business in the Lone Star State as Texas Water Utilities (TWU). The business unit will continue to oversee operations of the systems currently named Midway Water Utilities, Inc.; Monarch Utilities I L.P.; Hornsby Bend Utility Company; Windermere Utility Company; and Mid-Tex Utilities.
Since 1996, SouthWest Water Company has been committed to Texas, currently servicing 133 water and 26 wastewater systems across 36 counties.
“Our deep Texas roots are a central part of how we do business, and it was important to have our Lone Star heritage reflected in the name of our operations,” Jeffrey L. McIntyre, president of Texas Water Utilities, said. “I am thrilled for the direction Texas Water Utilities will take us as we build a better water utility together. Around here, we say, ‘Water empowered. For Texans, by Texans.’”
Under Texas Water Utilities, which is approaching 180 employees in Texas, the company will continue to provide service to 43,000 water connections and 17,300 wastewater connections.
“The new name has been well received by our engineers, operators and staff,” Rob MacLean, president and CEO of SouthWest Water Company, said. “We’re proud to have a single name we can rally around, which is incredibly important as we work toward expanding our services in Texas.”
SouthWest Water Company offers high-quality, reliable service to approximately 500,000 people in six states. Headquartered in Sugar Land, Texas, SouthWest Water Company invested $24 million in water and wastewater system improvements in Texas last year and plans to far exceed that in 2021, reaching an expected total of $35 million by year’s end. Through Texas Water Utilities, the company will continue to invest in infrastructure improvements to better serve the Lone Star State.
