Windermere Utility is owned by SouthWest Water Company, an investor-owned utility, which service water and wastewater for approximately 15,000 customers in the northwest part of the city of Pflugerville. The SouthWest Water Company owns regulated water and wastewater utilities across the nation, including Windermere, and serves cities, utility districts and private companies under contract. The City can not provide water to areas currently served by Windermere as the Windermere Water Utility Company has the Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) for certain areas in the city of Pflugerville to service water and wastewater. A CCN is obtained through application from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Once the utility company’s application is approved by TCEQ, they effectively become the sole provider of water and wastewater for the applied area.
Windermere Utility is one of three water suppliers with the Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) to serve Pflugerville customers. The city of Pflugerville, Windermere and Manville are the three providers that currently serve residents of the City of Pflugerville.
