TWDB Busy Planning 2017 & Beyond

Draft State Water Plan Approved
Earlier this month, the Texas Water Development Board approved the Draft 2017 State Water Plan, which details how water planners intend to meet the state's water needs through 2070 - never an easy task, certainly not when you consider Texas' projected population and job growth.

The plan is available for public review and comment until April 25. A public hearing on April 18 invites comments and discussion. Since 2015, SWIFT has approved and funded nearly $2 billion in projects. If all projects and strategies included in draft water plans were funded, the total would run more than $62 billion.
