Water hauling
« on: March 02, 2019, 10:29:13 AM »
Hello: I recently purchased land in Terlingua Ranch of Hwy 118 and am curious if anyone knows about water hauling to the area. I would love it if folks who know about water hauling could reply to this post with additional information.

Thank you. Jeff

I don't have running water at my cabin either.  We get potable water from the lodge.  I see water trailers filling non-potable water there all the time.  You can call the ranch to check prices on water and limits.

The Terlingua Ranch office sells non-potable water for 5 cents a gallon every day until 4:30.  Potable water is free up to 25 gallons per week.  I am not aware of a hauling service, but will ask around. Somebody is always willing to make a few bucks. I would suggest that you buy a tank and trailer to haul your own. Better yet, set up a water catchment system and cistern. That way you have water when you go visit your place.
