The Texas Water Development Board has been mandated to resolve the conflict in water plan agreements between two of the state’s water region boards. At the heart of the dispute is Region D’s removal of the Marvin Nichols Resevoir from its regional water plan submitted to the state, and Region C’s inclusion of that lake in its water plan, both submitted in 2011.
The Marvin Nichols lake was first proposed as a water management strategy in 1968 State Water Plan and in the three subsequent state plans. See the March 6 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details about this mandate.
