  5. 5. CREATION OF DISTRICT •City of Killeen needed water and Ft. Hood wanted to assist City •Department of Army ruling prohibited Ft. Hood from being in the wholesale water business and selling water to any City • Bell County WCID #1 was created in March 1952 to be the vehicle to sell water to Killeen and other area cities by leasing the plant from the Army. 5
  6. 6. DISTRICT WATER CONTRACT TO OPERATE WATER PLANT September 26, 1955 -“THE WATER TREATMENT CONTRACT” •District begins operating the Water Treatment Plant under the terms of a “NEGOTIATED WATER SERVICE CONTRACT”, with the Army. Contract No. DA-41-093 AIV-1146 • District transported water from Lake Belton for use by the US Army under the adjudicated water rights issued by the Texas Water Commission. 6
  7. 7. WATER PLANT LEASE February 24, 1956 - “THE LEASE” • District secured a long term lease “DA-41-443-ENG-4801”, to lease the existing plant and all of the infrastructure to include all land, machinery, and appurtenances to be used for the water treatment plant and all transmission facilities for the supply of water to the District’s customers. • This agreement has been extended until 2050 by Supplemental Agreement No. 3, drafted November 12, 2004. 7
  8. 8. WATER SUPPLY DISTRICT’S WATER CONTRACTS April 27,1956 - “KILLEEN AND COPPERAS COVE CONTRACT” • Entities entered into a contract with the District to treat and transport water and entities recognized District’s contracts and lease with the Federal Government. 8
  9. 9. THE DISTRICT’S CONTRACT WITH BRA July 28, 1964 “CONTRACT WITH THE BRAZOS RIVER AUTHORITY” • Authority agrees to sell water to District of such quantities as District can beneficially utilize for a period of 35 years beginning January 1, 1966 • District pays $.02/1000 gallons for water withdrawn from Lake Belton. • Under terms of “Negotiated Water Service Contract with the Army” – the Army has a water permit from the Texas Water Commission to divert and use water from Lake Belton and the District shall not be required to make payment to the BRA for water diverted for and used by Fort Hood. ( This is called An Adjudicated Water Right). • The District shall pay for water diverted by the District for all other use. 9
  10. 10. In the early to mid 1980’s water had become a much needed commodity and entities such as the BRA saw it as way to increase revenues to build reservoirs and infrastructure to meet water demands of the area they served. 10
  11. 11. Until this time, most water providers could use as much water as beneficially needed and pay around $.02 / 1000 gallons 11
  12. 12. In late 1984 and early 1985 negotiations for water began and it was determined that the county (BELL) would hold all of the water rights. Bell County under Judge Garth authorized Clay Roming, an engineer from Temple, to determine the water needs for Bell County. 12
