Below you will find a wealth of resources and information about water development plans and conservation in Central Texas. The organizations involved in the governing process include:

  • The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) strives to protect our state's public health and natural resources consistent with sustainable economic development. Their goal is clean air, clean water, and the safe management of waste.
  • The Lower Colorado River Authority's (LCRA) mission is to enhance the quality of life of the Texans they serve through water stewardship, energy and community service. They provide public power, manage the lower Colorado River and build and operate transmission lines across the state and more. LCRA manages the Highland Lakes under a Water Management Plan (WMP) that must be approved by TCEQ.
  • The Texas Water Development Board's (TWDB) mission is to provide leadership, information, education, and support for planning, financial assistance, and outreach for the conservation and responsible development of water for Texas.
  • The Region K Water Planning Group was established by the TWDB to help develop and revise the long-range water plan for the Central Texas region which will be included in the State Water Plan that will meet the region’s water needs over the next 50 years.
