About Us

Markout Water Supply Corporation was incorporated in Texas on May 31, 1965. In early 1988, the corporation was granted Non-Profit status by the Internal Revenue Service. The purpose of the Corporation is to provide continuous and adequate drinking water to every customer who requests service in its CCN (Certificate of Convenience and Necessity). Markout’s CCN covers approximately 5,000 acres of land in the south Forney area. Service is obtained by purchasing an equity membership in the system and Markout currently serves over 900 members. As a water utility, Markout is regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Public Utility Commission (PUC). Markout also holds a membership with the Texas Rural Water Association (TRWA) and is actively involved in the legislative proceedings that affect rural water systems.
The Corporation is governed by a Board of Directors who are all members on our water system that have been elected to serve by the membership. The Board of Directors meets monthly to discuss the operations of the Corporation. The annual membership meeting is held in the Month of April each year and all members of the system are encouraged to attend.
