Texas Approves $41M for Water Infrastructure

AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) recently approved financial assistance totaling $41,580,908 for water and stormwater infrastructure projects:

  • $34,530,000 to El Paso County for a flood mitigation project
  • $4,751,000 to the City of Corpus Christi (Nueces County) for stormwater system improvements
  • $2,299,908 to the City of Comanche (Comanche County) for water system improvements


The TWDB is Texas’s state agency, charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional water and flood planning, and preparing the state’s water and flood plans. TWDB also administers financial assistance programs for the construction of water infrastructure.

El Paso County received $34,530,000, consisting of $20,718,000 in financing and $13,812,000 in grant funding from TWDB’s Flood Infrastructure Fund. The county will use the funds for planning, acquisition, design, and construction of a flood mitigation project: a detention basin to provide flooding benefits to areas served by the El Paso County Water Improvement District and parts of the City of Socorro.

The city of Corpus received $4,751,000, consisting of $3,561,000 in financing and $1,190,000 in loan forgiveness from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. The city will use the funds for planning and design of a stormwater system improvement project to enhance a 12-mile section of the Oso Creek channel and several miles of earthen channels that convey stormwater to Oso Creek. The project is anticipated to improve the capacity of the stormwater system and reduce stormwater pollution.

The city of Camanche received $2,299,908, consisting of $1,506,000 in financing and $793,908 in loan forgiveness from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. The city will use the funds for planning, design, and construction of water system improvements, including replacing 10,000 linear feet of distribution lines and approximately 150 water service meters.
