About Us

Texas Operations & Professional Services (formerly Advantage WaterManagement) was founded in 2002 by a core group of seasoned industry professionals. In 2012, TOPS combined the strength of an existing water utility underground maintenance company with ten years of experience in the Harris, Fort Bend, Galveston and Montgomery County areas, along with a number of water utility professionals who have combined their resources to provide exceptional water utility operation, maintenance, and management for municipal utility districts in the greater Houston area.

We take significant pride in the fact that two words are often used to describe Texas Operations & Professional Services – Honesty and Integrity. These characteristics are at the core of our client commitment…and are the foundation upon which our business is built. Everyday, each of us makes an honest effort to meet or exceed our clients’ expectations…to provide stable, reliable, seamless service – predictably consistent.

We have made the necessary investment in equipment and personnel to provide exceptional operations, maintenance, and management services, including technical expertise and state-of-the-art billing software capabilities.

Texas Operations & Professional Services is a professional water utility service company (Water License #WC0000266, Wastewater License #OC0000262) that has a history of working with “Superior Public Water Systems.”

Innovation is another watchword for Texas Operations & Professional Services…and our ability to recognize opportunities and act on them creatively and cost-effectively offers serious benefits to our clients. We refuse to settle for the status quo, and this pays off in cost containment, minimum response time, and accelerated customer service. We leave as little as possible to chance.  Having the right tools at the right time is a huge advantage to be able to handle potential public health issues, and confirms your decision to rely on us in the first place.

There is always a TCEQ certified water utility Operator “On Call” around the clock, 24/7. In addition, we have written commitments from specialty vendors (e.g., construction, electrical and mechanical, chemical suppliers, etc.) to respond to our call in time of need.  We operate under strict security measures at all times – photo-identification badges for all personnel, cellular phones, and company logo-identified vehicles to make them readily identifiable in the neighborhood for both residents and local security personnel.

Another of our philosophical cornerstones is continuing education. Texas Operations & Professional Services personnel regularly attend as a member or as a participant in all of these important organizations and their meetings:

  • American Water Works Association;
  • Association of Water Board Directors – Texas;
  • Texas Water Utilities Association;
  • North Harris County Regional Water Authority;
  • NHCRWA Water Users Advisory Group;
  • West Harris County Regional Water Authority;
  • WHCRWA Operator Advisory Committee;
  • Harris-Galveston Coastal Subsidence District’s
  • “Water Wise” elementary education program.
