Region C Water Planning Group

The Region C Water Planning Group (RCWPG) is one of 16 regional water planning groups established by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to help develop and revise a comprehensive water plan for Texas through 2060. The RCWPG is made up of 19 members representing 11 different interest groups, who are responsible for developing and refining the long-range water plan for the North Central Texas region. NTMWD is a participant in the Region C Water Planning Group as a wholesale water provider.

 

The RCWPG has completed two five-year planning cycles since 1997 and is now in the middle of the third round of Regional Water Planning. Ultimately, the objective is to develop and refine a balanced, long-range plan that will meet the region's water needs over the next 50 years to avoid a water crisis.
