Water Planning has come a long way in Texas. Coming together to work across watershed, river basin, groundwater and county lines to ensure all communities have enough water for the future is the sensible approach to water planning. That is why water suppliers and agencies throughout several South Central Texas Counties have come together to form the Regional Water Alliance.
The Regional Water Alliance comprises local water purveyors and regional water entities that collaborate to promote and facilitate the sharing of ideas, knowledge, experience and resources toward meeting region’s diverse water needs.
The purpose of the Regional Water Alliance is to assist participating entities in:
- assessing and developing water supply options to meet the needs of one or more of the participating entities;
- promoting regional conservation of water resources;
- collaborating to realize region-wide efficiencies and economies of scale in the development, distribution, and operation of water projects for the mutual benefit of a diverse customer base; and,
- advancing a synergistic alliance among water agencies to jointly investigate funding opportunities, influence state and federal water regulations and policy, conduct study efforts and support a common voice in water issues facing the region.
