Water rights have been a tough fight between some Chisholm Trail Special Utility District customers and the City of Georgetown. A meeting held tomorrow might be the end of the district.

Over years of contention, the city of Georgetown has acquired water rights and other assets of the Chisholm Trail Special Utility District. On Monday, the district is holding a hearing to dissolve.

The city’s takeover of Chisholm, which includes water rights in southern Bell County, is the first time a city has taken over a special utility district outside its jurisdiction.
