In Texas, water planning happens from the ground up. That means we rely on local and regional groups—including the public, utilities, groundwater conservation districts, regional planning groups and others—to determine their local water needs and solutions. You can get involved in this process by attending a regional water planning group meeting in your part of the state.
TWDB is currently developing administrative rules that will provide for how SWIFT/State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas (SWIRFT) funds will be used, including establishing standards for rural, conservation, and reuse projects, and how to prioritize projects that are seeking financial assistance.
