The Allensworth Water Law Team

For several years, lawyers at Allensworth have been representing rural water districts in disputes over the development, design, and construction of infrastructure within their service areas. Specifically, they serve as legal counsel for water supply corporations and special utility districts, advocating for the preservation of their state service territory through certificates of convenience and necessity, as well as their federal law territorial rights under the federal lending program administered under 7 U.S.C. § 1926. With a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies involved, they navigate all forums affecting service territories, including administrative proceedings before the Public Utility Commission of Texas, and state and federal litigation. They provide guidance so that rural water districts can confidently interact with developers, contractors, and designers involved in water infrastructure development, while also implementing best practices to safeguard their territories from encroachment. The team at Allensworth empowers water districts to overcome challenges and continue providing vital water resources to their communities.
