Public input needed on regional water plan
Public input is being sought by the Brazos G Regional Water Planning Group on its subregional plans at two public meetings over the next week in the Rockdale area.
One meeting is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan 13, in the Waco Multi-Purpose Community Center, 1020 Elm Street, Waco.
Another meeting is scheduled for the next evening, Thursday, Jan. 14, in the College Station Conference Center, 1300 George Bush Drive College Station.
There’s also a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12, at the Abilene Civic Center’s Upstairs Conference Room, 1100 North Sixth in Abilene.
“Projections show by 2060 the Brazos River basin will not have enough water to meet the needs of its growing population,” Judi Pearce, spokesperson, said.
“If we are to avert a crisis, we must take steps now to ensure there is adequate water to meet regional and statewide needs in the coming decades,” she said.
“Brazos Region G regional Water Planning Group invites the public to the water planning process in their area by learning about the local and regional water plans and commenting on the draft 2011 Initially Prepared Brazos G Regional Water Plan at one of these sub-regional meetings,” she said.
“During each meeting the draft plan will be presented and an opportunity for questions will be available,” she said.
