A NBU utility easement allows New Braunfels Utilities the right to use an owner’s property for specific purposes such as to construct, repair, maintain, operate, and manage utility facilities. NBU utility easements must be kept clear so that New Braunfels Utilities can efficiently operate the utility systems under its control.

While most building permits don’t provide much information about easements, NBU can provide general easement information to a property owner at no cost.
