State approves LCRA’s revised water plan
Friday, February 7, 2020 by Tai Moses
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has approved an updated water management plan submitted by the Lower Colorado River Authority regarding lakes Buchanan and Travis. LCRA revised the plan after meeting with various stakeholders throughout the lower Colorado River basin. Phil Wilson, LCRA general manager, said in a news release, “This plan has greater protections for ‘firm’ customers such as cities and industries, while at the same time providing interruptible water for downstream agricultural operations. The plan also continues to provide water to help protect the health of the river and Matagorda Bay.” The revised plan has the same general framework as the 2015 plan.
