New Rate Recommended for Tecon Water

Customers across the state have been complaining for several months about the high rates charged by Tecon Water Company. Tecon customers currently pay a base rate of $31.45 per month, plus $3.80 for every 1,000 gallons of water used. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has made a preliminary recommendation for a lower base rate, $27.91, but to keep the variable rate the same.

"These are preliminary numbers," Jim Rawson, operations manager of Tecon Water, said. "That will not be the final number, I guarantee you."

A meeting in the next couple of months will allow Tecon and its customers to try to find a compromise.
