Voting Meeting of the Lower Colorado River Basin Coalition

86th LEGISLATIVE WRAP-UP

Flooding was a high priority for the Legislative Session that ended in May. Here are some of the take-aways for the lower Colorado River Basin.
  • Flood funding - voters statewide will be asked in November whether to make $793 million available in grants and low-cost loans for flood drainage, control and mitigation projects. Read more here.
  • Flood Stakeholder Meetings - the Texas Water Development Board will soon be holding flood stakeholder meetings around the state to gather input on financial and planning programs. Sign up for meeting notifications here.
SKULL CREEK - UPDATE

Some 31 landowners have petitioned to join a lawsuit against Inland Environmental & Remediation, the alleged polluter of Skull Creek - a tributary of the Colorado River. See details here.

Inland Environmental is currently under a court order to ensure that contamination doesn't reach the Colorado River tributary.

The order was negotiated between Inland and the Texas Attorney General's Office. The AG's office declined to provide a status report to LCRBC.
