For more than 60 years, the NTMWD has been planning and developing new water supplies to meet the needs of our growing region. The NTMWD’s water supply plans continue to be evaluated and implemented as demand changes.

With the passage of Senate Bill 1, a comprehensive water law passed by the Texas Legislature in 1997, water providers are required to participate in the state water-planning process. This water planning process is designed to ensure that the water needs of all Texans are met for the 50-year planning cycle. Water providers must develop long-term water plans, submit the plans to the state, and update the plans every five years.

Some of the most recent NTMWD planning efforts include:
