The Texas 2012 State Water Plan outlined $53 billion worth of potential water projects. On November 5, 2013, amid a continuing water crisis, Texas voters passed Proposition 6 – enabling the state to take $2 billion from the Economic Stabilization Fund (the so-called “Rainy Day Fund”). This new infusion of funding and initiatives will create a multitude of project opportunities and re-define the way Texas State and local governments use and invest in solutions to address the water crisis; and fund new water transportation and infrastructure projects.

 

As a result, competition for this money will be fierce. Further compounding this problem for stakeholders is a law passed last year, House Bill 4, which provides some parameters for the allocation of these funds. However, in June, as required by that law. 16 regional planning groups submitted their own rankings for projects. With public comments ending September 1st and the final rulemaking under SWIFT not expected to pass until March 1st it is unclear how this all will impact the statewide prioritization and assignment process. The key to competition is knowing the administrative rules the state crafts in the next few months regarding project funding. Only those intimately aware of the latest rules, regulations and municipal water needs impacting project funding opportunities and development will succeed in this fiercely competitive landscape.

Infocast’s 3rd Lone Star Water Summit, December 10-12, 2014 in Austin, TX will give attendees a commanding view of the upcoming competitive and regulatory landscape, as well as the opportunity to give feedback to the rule-makers. Attend to meet key regulators, legislators and municipalities in Texas water as they discuss: regulations, project funding, and development opportunities essential to developing critically-needed Texas water infrastructure. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this exciting new phase in the Texas’ water revolution!
