2022 State Water Plan

2022 State Water Plan

The 2022 State Water Plan was adopted by the Board on July 7, 2021.

The 2022 State Water Plan marks a quarter century of Texas’ widely recognized regional water planning process and the fifth state water plan based on the work of hundreds of water planning stakeholders. The state’s water planning process is founded on extensive data and science and guided by a robust state framework that requires all 16 regional water planning groups to openly and genuinely address all their water supply needs. This plan sets forth thousands of specific, actionable strategies and projects—costs and sponsors included—that clearly demonstrate how Texas will be able to withstand future droughts. Our agency works diligently to continually improve data collection, water science, and other tools in support of better planning, which ultimately result in water projects with tangible benefits for the state.
