Information for Consultants

Find resources to meet the NFBWA requirements as our partner in subsidence prevention.

Partners in Subsidence Prevention

Consultants are vital partners to the North Fort Bend Water Authority (“NFBWA”) in the fight against subsidence. As a consultant, we need your help educating local retail water providers and the broader community about our community goals.

To accomplish the mission of preventing subsidence, the NFBWA is actively reducing groundwater pumpage by providing surface water to retail water providers in the northern Fort Bend County region. Our groundwater reduction requirements are mandated by the Fort Bend Subsidence District (“FBSD”) Regulatory Plan.

To meet the next FBSD milestone, we’re currently constructing the necessary infrastructure to reduce groundwater usage by 60% by 2025.

This includes:

  • Securing surface water rights to 88 million gallons per day.
  • Constructing the infrastructure to treat, convey, and deliver that surface water to our Groundwater Reduction Plan (GRP) Participants.
  • Building our projects through the next phase of surface water conversion.

This work is anticipated to cost the NFBWA approximately $1.3 billion dollars in capital costs, which will be paid for through bonds, with our water fees.

For Your Clients


The NFBWA provides resources for Water Providers to illustrate to residents why the NFBWA exists and what our fee provides.
