Welcome to AMWA
The Athens Municipal Water Authority ("AMWA") owns and maintains Lake Athens, both for recreation and to provide raw, untreated, wholesale water to the City of Athens. The City of Athens then treats, sells, and distributes water to their customer's homes in the City of Athens.
The Athens Municipal Water Authority (“AMWA”) was originally formed in 1957 by the Texas Legislature as a Conservation and Reclamation District. In 1979 AMWA was converted into a municipal utility district operating under Chapter 54 of the Texas Water Code.
