Our Mission

Lake Kiowa Special Utility District will provide dependable water service that consistently meets or exceeds TCEQ water quality standards.  Services will be delivered at a fair and reasonable price that reflects the cost of producing, testing, storing, and distributing this precious treasure.
It is our goal to always treat our customers equally with respect and honesty.

Irrigation Systems

If you are having trouble with your irrigation system resetting itself after an electrical brown out or disruption you might purchase and install a UPS uninterruptabe power supply (battery backup). These UPS systems are the same as what you probably have on your home computer system. By installing the UPS your system time clock will not be reset when the power fails. These are especially useful for owners who do not live here full time or vacationers. BTW the 9 volt battery that is installed on most system controllers only backs up your settings when the system loses power.

The production of plastic has grown 8 percent a year for decades, much more than any other manufactured material, because plastic is just so useful. We use it for packaging (43%) and construction (20%); we have plastic in our clothes, our cars, our computers.

Plastic really is everywhere.

“Roland Geyer, an industrial ecologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, says no one had tallied how much plastic people have manufactured since its invention. When he did it, he was shocked at what he found. 'Eight point three billion metric tons of plastics produced so far. That's just really a staggering amount.' He did some calculations to understand that number. 'And it turned out that it can cover an area the size of Argentina,' he says, 'which is the eighth-largest country in the world.'
