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 is made up of local water purveyors and regional water entities that are working together to promote and facilitate the sharing of ideas, knowledge, experience and resources in order to seek and implement collaborative solutions to effectively meet the 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 and reuse of water resources;
- working together 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.
The next RWA meeting is August 12, 2014, at 10:00am in the Boardroom of the San Antonio River Authority, 100 E. Guenther Street, San Antonio, 78204.
