Ellis County Water Supply Project

The Ellis County Regional Water Supply Project provides a dependable, long-term water supply for Ellis County.  TRA purchases raw water from the Tarrant Regional Water District, which is then sold at cost to 12 entities in Ellis County.

Under the project contract, financing assistance to pay the District’s buy-in costs was provided by four of the contracting parties: Ferris, Maypearl, Bristol Water Supply Corporation and the Buena Vista-Bethel Water Supply Corporation.
