To enhance the capability of our primary water source, the Rio Grande, to better serve our region well into the future.
The Rio Grande Regional Water Authority was created by the Texas Legislature in 2003 as a conservation and reclamation district ‘to serve a public use and benefit’ by bringing together regional water interests to accomplish projects and services within Willacy, Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, Zapata, and Webb Counties (Excluding the City of Laredo).
The Authority was specifically created to supplement -Not replace- the services, regulatory powers, and authority of irrigation districts, water development supply corporations, counties, municipalities, and other political subdivisions within its borders.
The RGRWA operates in accordance with established operating guidelines, including by-laws. All RGRWA meetings are open to the public and provide opportunity for public comment.
