Texas Water Code

Sec. § 49.3184
Consideration of Application


As soon as practicable after an application is filed, the board shall consider the application and inquire into all the facts relating to the application that the board considers necessary for determining whether a public hearing on the application should be held.


After consideration and investigation, the board shall adopt an order approving further consideration of the application if the board finds that:


all amounts due the district under Section 49.3182 (Conditions for Exclusion of Urban Property)(1) up to the date of the filing of the application have been paid;


the property described in the application:


is owned by the applicant;


is urban property and is not used or intended to be used for agricultural purposes; and


will require a source of treated potable water from the municipality in which the subdivision is located; and


the exclusion of the property will not cut off the district or its facilities from ready and convenient access to other land remaining in the district for irrigation or other district purposes.


If the board is unable to make any one of the findings under Subsection (b), it shall adopt a resolution rejecting the application.


A resolution of the board rejecting an application is final and not subject to review by any other body, tribunal, or authority.
