County officials show support of water enhancement program

March 31, 2019by ncdea

TEXAS – Conservation district officials asked members of the Texas Legislature to support bills that restore funding for the Water Enhancement Program, and Water Quality Plan Grant, and funding for the Watershed program to address the backlog of maintenance and repairs.

“I was glad to see such a diverse group of dedicated directors make the trip to Austin to support these critical funding issues. The legislative session is far from over but I believe we were able to make a positive impact as members get ready to make critical votes on these issues.” Volney Hough, ATSWCD President said.

Austin McCasland, Board member for Texas Conservation Association for Water and Soil (TCAWS) said, “This was the best conservation day yet. It was great to have the opportunity to have meaningful conversations about policy with the members and staff of the legislature”.
