TWBD Requests for Information on Interregional Water Supply Projects

As directed by House Bill 1052 that passed during the 86th Legislative Session, the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is issuing a request for information (RFI) to seek information and comments regarding water supply projects that would benefit multiple water planning regions. The purpose is to provide a means for stakeholders to share ideas regarding the types of interregional projects that could be considered for funding at a later date.
Full RFI details, including a map of the regional water planning areas, are available on the Electronic Business Daily website. Please note: This is only an RFI. The TWDB is not seeking applications for funding at this time.
Respondents are encouraged to provide specific recommendations for water supply projects that benefit multiple planning regions. Each recommendation must include detailed explanations of the following:
  • How the use of private financial resources would be maximized
  • How the financial resources of multiple water planning regions would be combined
  • How the project would substantially economically benefit the regions served by
  • affecting a large population,
  • creating jobs in the regions served, and
  • meeting a percentage of the water supply needs of the water users served by the project.
Responses, due by 2:00 p.m. on July 1, 2020, must be submitted using this form (also shown in Appendix B of the RFI) and delivered via mail to the TWDB at one of the following addresses:
