Serving industry that drives the economic engine of our region.

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. SJRA’s Highlands Division delivers more water each day than all of SJRA’s other operating divisions combined and has been SJRA’s principal enterprise since the 1940s.
