About Us

The The Hardin County W.C.I.D. #1, more commonly referred to as the Pinewood Water District, was first commissioned on November 18, 1963. The mission of the Board is to provide water, sewer, and drainage within the Pinewood subdivision. A Board of Directors was established consisting of five (5) board members, which is consistent with today’s Board. Presently, there are 444 residential connections and 4 commercial connections within the community. The Board meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 P.M. at the Pinewood V.F.D located on Commercial Drive.

The Directors are elected at-large and serve staggered four-year terms. The Board operates at all times within the Texas Water Code and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The Board is responsible for the daily operations of the water and wastewater distribution and collection within the Pinewood community. In order to meet these requirements, the Board has the authority to construct, maintain and operate the water and sewer facilities as determined to be in the best interest of the community. It is also the responsibility of the Board to develop an annual budget and establish a tax rate and water usage rate that will maintain the integrity of daily operations.
