How does the City of Boerne’s agreement with GBRA work?

Our maximum water availability from Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) and planned treatment plant improvements at Boerne City Lake will allow us to serve in excess of 40,000 people. However, Boerne Utilities is not currently taking our maximum allocation of GBRA water due to the high cost of that treated water supply and having a service population of just over half that number. The amount of water we request from GBRA is delivered on a constant flow basis and can only ratchet upward. Thus, we cannot request more in drought conditions and reduce that allocation when rains occur.
