* Under the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) contract, cities pay for water based on their greatest single year of usage. Richardson's “Take or Pay” volume of 11,019,311,000 gallons was delivered to the City in fiscal year 2001. Since then, the city has been required to purchase that amount every year, even though the community has not reached that consumption level again.
