 MOUNTAIN PEAK SPECIAL UTILITY DISTRICT 

(ELLIS AND JOHNSON COUNTIES)

About Us


Mountain Peak Special Utility District is a subdivision of the State of Texas established under Chapter 65 and 49 of the Texas Water Code.  We are regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and The Texas Public Utilities Commission (TPUC) and have been designated as a "Superior System". Our sole purpose is to serve safe quality drinking water to the customers that reside within the legal boundaries of the District as approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The main concern of the staff and Board of Directors is public health. Your drinking water is tested monthly for bacteria and is also tested daily for disinfection content. Your water is treated at the source with 100% gaseous chlorine in an amount sufficient to kill any bacteria but not so much as to cause taste or odor problems. Your water originates from artesian wells in the Trinity group of aquifers. We also buy a pre determined amount of surface water from Joe Pool Lake to supplement for summer peak demand. The surface water is purchased through the City of Midlothian.

 

There is an elected Board consisting of 7 Directors that each serve three year terms.  These Directors volunteer their time in an effort to better the community. 

 

A Corporation was created in 1969 and converted into a Special Utility District in 2003 and has since grown to over 4,500 customers. 

 

All operations are under the direction of the General Manager, Randel Kirk, who is hired by the Board of Directors.  The office staff will gladly assist you with any questions that you may have and the field personnel respond promptly to all service related issues.
