Texas Operations & Professional Services (formerly Advantage Water Management) was founded in 2002 by a core group of seasoned industry professionals. In 2012, TOPS recognized the strength of an existing water utility underground maintenance company with 10 years of experience in the counties of Harris, Fort Bend, Galveston and Montgomery. TOPS then coupled that experience with a number of water utility professionals who combined their resources to provide exceptional water utility operation, maintenance, and management for municipal utility districts in the greater Houston area.


To be trusted stewards of water resources so communities can thrive.

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.
