Land of Living Waters




The City of Junction, by state mandate, adopted a Drought Contingency Plan in November, 2015. The purpose of the plan is to establish procedures for identifying and responding to a water supply emergency. The overall objective is to minimize any risks to public health and safety, preserve essential public services, and minimize any adverse impacts of a water supply emergency on the residents and economic well-being of the City.

Because of the Water Supply, the City of Junction will now go to: STAGE 1 - Voluntary

Triggering level: When U.S. water flows in the Llano River reaches 80 cfs or WTP Capacity at 90% for 5 consecutive days.

Junction is a rural ranching community nestled deep within a fertile Texas Hill Country river valley. The City derives its name from its location at the convergence of the North and South Llano rivers. Though named for its rivers, Junction could very well have been named for the many roads that meet here. The most prominent junction of roads is the intersection of Interstate Highway 10 and US Highways 83, 290 and 377 which come together just west of where the rivers join. Numerous other Rural Routes, Farm To Market and County Roads meet here as well.

Junction derives its official nick name " The Land of Living Waters " from the fact that there is more flowing water in Junction and Kimble County than any other county in the state.

The second most abundant natural resource in Junction is friendly people. Come to Junction for a visit or for a lifetime. Either way, you are sure to meet some of the friendliest folks you've ever known.
