Annual Meeting – April 22, 2019
The Corporation has set April 22, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. as its Annual Meeting date. Only one application was received for the two open positions expiring at the Annual Meeting. Therefore, there is no need for an election. Susan Crawford was declared elected by resolution (see below). When there are no opposing applicants for the open positions, Texas Water Code Section 67.0055 provides for election by Resolution. The Board took this action at its regularly scheduled meeting on March 18, 2019. The Board is seeking applicants for the remaining open position. The Board consists of a Professional Engineer, a Risk Manager with a Legal Background, two Accountants, a Construction Manager, a Consultant Specializing in Manufacturing Efficiency and Product Development, and a Chemist. The Board is looking for candidates with Geology, Chemistry, Engineering, or water utility experience to supplement the skills already on the Board. Please note that this is a volunteer position with monthly Board Meetings on either the second or third Mondays of each month. The person elected will serve a three-year term.
The letter to the Membership and the Agenda are attached. We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting.
UPDATE–UPDATE– The Corporation is in the process of replacing older water meter bodies that have worn out. Crews will be working throughout the neighborhoods for the rest of February and into early March. Meter bodies are generally accurate for 10 years. Cross Timbers last changed meters in 2008 and 2009. These new meters have “smart meter” technology built into them. This allows the meter to capture and retain 90 days worth of water use with measurements down as low as 1/10th of a gallon – a large glass of water. We can access this information with a laptop today should you need it. Once all the meters have been changed, we will work towards making this information available to the Membership via an online connection. We don’t expect this to be available until sometime in late 2020.
NEW BILLING FEATURE AVAILABLE – Paperless billing is now available for your use. If you select this, you will receive notice via email, text message or both when your bill is prepared. In addition, you will receive reminder notices prior to the due date of the 25th of the month advising you your bill is due shortly. Over 1,057 of your fellow Members now have the convenience of receiving their bills this way. Won’t you join them? More information is available under the Pay Your Bill Online icon.
Some of the many benefits of online bill payment:
- FAST – Electronic payments post to your account immediately. You can see the payment applied against your account in seconds.
- CONVENIENCE – Eliminate stamps, writing checks, and sealing envelopes. No need to worry about checks being lost in the mail or being delivered late.
- EMAIL ALERTS – By signing up for paperless billing, you receive notices via text or email. You know when your bill is ready to view and when it’s time to pay.
- VIEW ONLINE PAYMENT ACTIVITY – Your payment and billing history is available when you need it.
- CONTROL – You control when payments are made. You can pay via credit/debit cards or via EFT through your bank. You can also set up automatic payments wherein the amount is deducted on the due date of the bill (25th of each month).
- PAYMENTS ALWAYS ARRIVE ON TIME – There are no mail delays, and the payment status is more accurate.

- Residents who live in a community that receives treated water from Upper Trinity (you do) can sign up to receive a FREE Irrigation System Check-Up by a Licensed Irrigator! Simply click this link and fill out the Request Form and Upper Trinity will contact you!
- Check your irrigation system for leaks. Go through the stations and run each one for a minute to see if you have broken sprinkler heads or areas where no sprinkling occurs indicating a broken pipe underground. Shut your sprinkler system off for 2-3 days if rain is anticipated or rain has occurred. Lawns sprinkled twice a week will survive better than a lawn sprinkled every day.

Approval received for Construction Assistance Cross Timbers Water Supply Corporation has received approval on its Application for Assistance in the amount of $2,000,100 from the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, for construction of water distribution system improvements. Cross Timbers WSC will use the funds to build, repair, and improve its public water system and other related costs. The projects will consist of constructing approximately 20,000 linear feet of new 8” and 6” PVC water distribution lines in selected portions of the system to provide for continuous and adequate water service and provide for fire flow protection within these areas. In addition, the new lines will replace small diameter (2”, 3”, & 4”) distribution lines currently in place.
