Other cities and entities within Tarrant, Johnson, Denton and Parker counties contract with Fort Worth for drinking water, wastewater and reclaimed water services. These are considered wholesale customers because they resell the services to their own customers. 

Uniform wholesale contracts dictate the terms of the agreements and specify the methodology for calculating rates.

Some entities are wholesale customers for more than one service. Others receive only one of the services from Fort Worth. Some entities have other sources of water supply and only use Fort Worth services in an emergency.
