Their team of nearly 750 employees:

  • Builds, maintains, protects, stores and conserves regional water supplies.
  • Treats and delivers clean drinking water.
  • Collects, treats and disposes trash, sewage and other waste.

The City of Fate is a "Customer City" to the NTMWD.  We receive treated water from the District and then store and distribute the treated water to the residences and businesses throughout our community.  NTMWD also operates the Sabine Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant (shared between Fate and Royse City).
