2017 State Water Plan

2017 Draft State Water Plan

The 2017 State Water Plan was adopted by the Board on May 19, 2016.

To ensure the ongoing vitality of our economy, Texas' citizens, water experts, and government agencies collaborate in a comprehensive water planning process. We plan so that Texans will have enough water in the future to sustain our cities and rural communities, our farms and ranches, and our homes and businesses while also preserving the agricultural and natural resources that have defined Texas for generations. The 2017 State Water Plan tells us that our population will continue its rapid growth. The plan also provides a roadmap for how to address the water needs that accompany that growth by identifying water management strategies and their associated costs for communities all across the state. The information in this plan is critical to ensuring that Texas has adequate and affordable water supplies both now and in the future.
