The voice for water recycling in Texas.

Sharing - and Funding - Best Practices

At its SWIFT meeting earlier this month, the Texas Water Development Board dedicated more than $700M to water projects across the state, including areas of high growth like El Paso, north Harris County, and Austin. This is the 2nd funding round from SWIFT, following last year's $889M round. Twelve projects, all part of the 2017 State Water Plan and representing 18 different strategies, were selected. In a local highlight, Austin Water will get a $167M boost for its recycling, reclamation, and conservation efforts.

TXWRA Chair Brent Halldorson (Fountain Quail) will discuss the RRC recycling rules, trends in oilfield water management, and ownership and liability issues surrounding recycled water at a Water Law 101 symposium this month. We'll post his presentation on the Association's web site once he's delivered it, so look for it soon.

Past President John Tintera (Texas Alliance of Energy Producers) recently shared the merits of water reuse and recycling with more than 50 British companies through a webinar hosted by the British Consulate.

Thank you, Brent and John, for your tireless support of TXWRA and water recycling.

Recycling is an important, cost-effective part of conservation efforts. TXWRA encourages all technologies in the effort to increase adoption of water recycling.
