What is a CCN?

A Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) is issued by the State of Texas Public Utility Agency (PUC) to allow orderly, efficient and cost effective extension of water and/or wastewater services to developing areas.  The CCN grants exclusive retail service rights to the water and/or wastewater service provider (City of San Marcos).
