Located in east Harris County, the Highlands Division delivers raw water from Lake Houston and the Trinity River through an extensive 27-mile system of canals and a 1,400-acre staging reservoir in order to provide water to customers such as Exxon Mobil, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, and a number of other industrial, municipal, and agricultural customers pursuant to long-term water supply contracts. The Highlands Division delivers more water each day than all of SJRA’s other operating divisions combined and has been SJRA’s principle enterprise.
