I'm encouraged by the actions taken today by the Texas Water Development Board that finds a conflict does exist between Region C & Region D Water Planning Groups.
Region D has presented an abundance of information to the TWDB which demonstrated the devastating effects the Marvin Nichols reservoir would have on East Texas. I'm grateful to the Board for hearing these concerns and their actions to promote a resolution.
We must be ever vigilant on this issue. Region C has demonstrated they have little incentive or interest to work with us and I fear the force of government could still be used to take East Texas water, land, resources, and more. This issue is far from resolved, but positive steps have been taken.
