Where does League City’s drinking water come from?
The City of League City purchases surface water from the Gulf Coast Water Authority and the City of Houston. Water from the Gulf Coast Water Authority comes from the Brazos River located in Galveston County, while water from the City of Houston comes from the Trinity River located in Harris County.
