Texas Water Infrastructure Network Funding

On November 5, 2013, Texans overwhelmingly approved Proposition 6, the constitutional amendment that will assist in securing long-term water supplies for Texas by authorizing a one-time use of $2 billion to capitalize and assist in full implementation of the 50-year water plan. Prop 6 provides crucial funding to implement projects and strategies included in the Texas State Water Plan through the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas or “SWIFT”. These investments in water supply infrastructure projects and water conservation efforts will help to ensure the water future of rural and urban Texas.


TxWIN is committed to working with our industry partners, the Texas Legislature, and the Texas Water Development Board , local and regional water utilities to ensure  that contracting practices and public funds are administered in a manner that promotes fair competition and value for the Texas public and has actively participated in the implementation of SWIFT.
