Plateau Water Planning Group (Region J)

 
Planning Purpose and Process

In response to the drought of the 1950s and in recognition of the need to plan for the future, the legislature created the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to develop water supplies and prepare plans to meet the state's future water needs.  In 1997, the legislature established a new water planning process coordinated by 16 planning groups, one for each regional water planning area (map).  The planning groups are each made up of about 20 members and represent a variety of interests.  The planning groups conduct all functions at open meetings in an open and participatory manner.

 

The ongoing work of the regional water planning process consists of seven tasks:

 

Once the planning group adopts their regional water plan, the plan is sent to TWDB for approval, who then compiles information from the approved regional water plans and other sources to develop the state water plan.

 

The Plateau Water Planning Region stretches from the Central Texas Hill Country westward to the Rio Grande and consists of Bandera, Edwards, Kerr, Kinney, Real and Val Verde counties (map).
