The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is responsible for helping provide funds for drinking water systems, wastewater systems, and flood control - a mighty job for a large state with so many different water challenges! The TWDB prepared a lengthy and detailed report requesting the funds they’d need to fulfill their mission to lead the state's efforts in ensuring a secure water future for Texas and its citizens. We’d like for our Clean Water Action members’ voices to be heard loud and clear supporting full funding for priorities laid out by the TWDB, and to also advocate for additional staff and funding resources to enable Texas to take full advantage of the historic levels of water funding coming through the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
Please take the email action to write a message to members of our Texas House Committee on Appropriations and Senate Committee on Finance. Please add any comments or edit the letter as you like.
