Denton County Fresh Water Supply District 10
The community of Savannah lies within the boundaries of the Denton County Fresh Water Supply District #10. A Fresh Water Supply District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas that functions, much like a city, to construct and maintain all public water, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, and road infrastructure within its boundaries.
The District has a governing body that is composed of five directors, who are elected by the voters within the boundaries of a particular District. The directors’ duties are similar to that of a city council; they manage the business affairs of each district. The directors hire consultants, independent lawyers, civil engineers, financial advisors, and accountants to assist in the areas of their expertise. Each District has the authority to levy an ad valorem tax (property tax), to alleviate the costs of constructing and maintaining the public water, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, paving infrastructure within Savannah. Savannah residents’ tax bills will reflect the following taxing entities: Denton County, Denton ISD, and the Denton County Fresh Water Supply District #10.
The Denton County Fresh Water Supply District #10 contracts with Advantage Leadership Resources, LLC for general management and day-to-day operational duties. The management staff, Greg Wilkerson or Donna Wilkerson, can be contacted directly at 214.305.5719 or via email at districtmanager@DCFWSD10.org
Water and Wastewater Services
The Districts purchase treated drinking water from the Upper Trinity Regional Water District ("UTRWD"), which also provides water to over 21 cities and towns, and numerous districts throughout the surrounding area. UTRWD has one of the only treatment facilities in the State of Texas that uses both charcoal and osmosis to enhance the purity of the water. For more information, please visit www.utrwd.com. The wastewater (sewage) from Savannah is processed by an ultra modern treatment plant, which is also owned, operated and maintained by Upper Trinity Regional Water District.
The retail provider of water service in southeastern Denton County area is “Mustang Special Utility District”, and because Mustang is already reading meters and maintaining water lines in the Savannah area, the District deemed it economical to hire Mustang to operate and maintain the District’s water and sewer facilities, including reading meters and issuing the monthly water bills on behalf of the District. Mustang can be reached by phone at (940) 440-9561, or on the web at www.mustangwater.com.
