Governor Perry Signs Landmark Water Legislation in Texas
$2 Billion Water Fund Bill - Allots 20% for Water Conservation and Reuse Source: Alliance for Water Efficiency
Texas marked a milestone in water stewardship and conservation policy as Gov. Rick Perry signed House Bill 4, which lays the foundation for meeting Texas' water future. HB 4 provides for active, full-time governance at the Texas Water Development Board; creates a new funding mechanism to support water-supply project implementation over the next 50 years; and directs local, regional and state officials to prioritize projects to ensure efficient use of available resources.
The bill earmarks 20% for conservation and reuse projects for municipal and agricultural water use. It is the largest dedicated conservation and reuse project funding in any state to date.
Texas voters will be asked to approve in November moving $2 billion in money from the rainy day fund to invest in these water projects.
