The North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) is a regional water authority created by the 79TH Texas Legislature, with the passage of Senate Bill 1798 in May 2005 . The primary reason for the Authority’s creation was to facilitate compliance with the Fort Bend Subsidence District’s groundwater reduction mandates by creating a viable single entity to acquire, develop and deliver a long term supply of potable surface water to the water users in the Authority’s Groundwater Reduction Plan (GRP). In addition, the need for surface water is heightened by the conclusion of a 2002 Water Needs Analysis (authorized by the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court) that rapid population growth in Fort Bend County combined with the Subsidence District’s groundwater reduction mandates will likely cause water shortages in the County as early as 2014.
