REGIONAL WATER ISSUES
Planning for the 2017 Texas State Water Plan is underway, and the Rio Grande Regional Water Planning Group (Region M) is updating its regional water plan in an effort to meet future needs. Community involvement is sought and encouraged in this process.
Region M is now soliciting water project ideas and water supply and management strategies from all water suppliers and citizens within the planning area. See link below for the Water Management Strategy Submittal form. All responses are due by December 11, 2013.
