About the Authority
The La Porte Area Water Authority was created in 1981 by the State Legislature. The legislation granted the Authority rights and powers related to acquisition of water supplies and the collection/treatment of wastes. The early mission of the Authority was to secure surface water to entities contracting with the Authority. The Authority may purchase, construct, lease or otherwise acquire property and facilities relating to their mission. They may contract with persons, corporations, municipal corporation and political subdivisions of the State with the approval of the City Council.
