Texas Approves $24M for Water, Flood Projects

AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) announces financial assistance totaling $24.4 million for water and flood projects across the state. The funded projects are as follows:

$13 million was given to the Parker County Special Utility District (Parker County) for water system improvements. Parker County will use the assistance to finance the planning, acquisition, design, and construction of a water system improvement project. The county will construct water distribution system improvements, including a new elevated storage tank, transmission lines, and distribution lines.

$10.8 million was given to the Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 7 (Fort Bend County) for a flood mitigation project. Fort Bend County will use the assistance for the planning, design, and construction of a flood mitigation project. The county will reduce internal flood risk though a combination of additional stormwater pumping and detention capacity, including the construction of a new detention pond to provide an additional approximate 115 acre-feet of storage.

$600,000 was given to the Moffat Water Supply Corporation (Bell County) for water system improvements. The Moffat Water Supply Corporation will use the assistance to finance the construction of a water system improvement project.

In December 2018, the corporation received a $3.3-million commitment from the Texas Water Development Fund for planning, acquisition, design, and construction of a water system improvement project. Early in the design phase, the project team determined that additional funding would be needed to complete construction due to rising costs. With the remaining project funds and the additional financial assistance recently approved, the corporation will construct a new 200,000-gallon elevated storage tank and a new ground storage tank, as well as make pump station improvements.
