In October 2013, the Town of Rockport contracted with Dewbrry Engineers, Inc. to provide the Town with a Water Needs Assessment of its water system supply and infrastructure. The Town has contracted several water needs studies and drought management reports in the past. These reports projected population growth, water demand increases, rainfall predictions, and recommendations for potential new water sources to accommodate future water needs. The Town has used these studies and reports as an operational guideline and resource for planning and development of new water sources. Updating this information was necessary for current conditions, and future operations, as well as continued planning for additional future water sources if needed.
