FMT Program

TRWA’s technical assistance program, funded through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Financial, Managerial, and Technical Assistance Contract, provides financial, managerial and technical assistance to water and wastewater systems on varying assistance needs to aid in system viability. A sampling of some of the assistance provided includes consolidation, funding sources, reporting, compliance, meeting disinfection by product requirements, assistance with public notices, lead and copper monitoring, a monitoring plan, operation and maintenance manuals, board and staff training, and staying current on rules and regulations.

PUC Financial and Managerial Assistance Program

It is important for Texas public water and sewer utilities to remain financially, managerially and technically sound as they provide clean drinking water, collect and treat sewage and reuse or discharge treated sewage properly. Under the PUC's Assistance Program, TRWA can provide an existing or proposed water or sewer utility with support and guidance tailored to utility's specific needs. 

Through this program, we work to ensure that Texas water and sewer utilities do not fall out of compliance with regulations designed to protect consumers, human health and the environment.  TRWA can also help struggling water or sewer utilities carefully consider whether consolidation with a neighboring utility would be a reasonable way to solve long-running problems.

Source Water Protection Program

Source water protection is a proactive program intended to assist systems in preventing contaminants from entering their supply sources. SWP includes the following activities: developing a planning team, delineate (mapping) the protection area, inventorying and mapping (using GPS and GIS) of potential sources of contamination (things like underground storage tanks, wells, gas stations, marinas etc), preparing a report including maps, and preparing contingency plan and plan for best management practice program implementation. TRWA has more than 10 years experience implementing SWP programs in Texas and currently works with both groundwater and surface water systems. The three federally funded source water programs allow TRWA to set up SWP programs for water systems and assist them with contingency plans to address contamination events and best management practices programs to lessen the probability of contamination occurring.
