Request for Comments – Central Height Water System

Recently, the City of Nacogdoches (City) and the Angelina & Neches River Authority (ANRA) began a conversation about the possibility of ANRA acquiring the Central Heights water system, which is owned and operated by the City of Nacogdoches. The portion of the City’s water system in Central Heights currently services approximately 363 connections. The City has indicated that this portion of the water system has reached its service capacity regarding the number of connections it can serve with the infrastructure currently in place. The City desires to focus its attention and finances on other infrastructure-related matters inside the city limits and has expressed a desire to partner with a public entity who shares similar governmental responsibilities and a legislative mission to initiate a transfer of the water system. After several technical meetings, both the City and ANRA participated in an initial due diligence process for sharing data, conducting site visits and exploring options for moving forward.

A public meeting was held on November 17, 2022 at Central Heights ISD, and ANRA is now accepting public comments until December 16, 2022.

Handouts from the public meeting, and a comment form are available below.
