Situated north of the Town of Little Elm and south of the City of Prosper the District is home to The Shoppes At Sunset Pointe, Frisco Hills, Frisco Ranch and The Preserve. Home to almost 7,000 residents the District is completely encompassed in the Frisco Independent School District and is overseen by an elected Board of Directors.

Created by order of the Denton County Commissioners Court on June 27th, 2000, the Denton County Fresh Water Supply District No. 8 of Denton County (the ‘District’) was established to purchase, construct, acquire, own, operate, repair, improve and extend sanitary sewer systems inside the District. Further extended on December 4th, 2000 as a Water Control and Improvement District under Chapter 51 of the Texas Water Code it was later divided on November 5th, 2002 by approval of the voters into DCFWSD 8-B and DCFWSD 8-C.

Pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 49, 51 and 53 of the Texas Water Code, the District is empowered to purchase, operate and maintain all facilities, plants and improvements necessary to provide water, sanitary sewer service, storm sewer drainage, irrigation, roads, solid waste collection and disposal, including recycling, parks and recreational facilities for the residents of the District. The District is also empowered to contract for or employ its own peace officers with powers to make arrests and to establish, operate and maintain a fire department to perform all fire-fighting activities within the District.

Board Members

The District is overseen by an elected body of five representatives; each a resident of the District elected to a four year term. Duly vested with the power to oversee operations inside the District the Board of Directors operates much like that of a City Council. Chaired by the President, the Board of Directors governs policy and operations inside the District including police, fire, water and infrastructure services.
