Creating the Texas Water Fund to assist in financing water projects in the state.
Support Sufficient Water Supply During a Drought:
Texas’ population is projected to increase 70% in the next 50 years, and our existing water supply will not be adequate to support the new population, especially during an extended drought.
Proposition 6 will support the development of new water supplies to meet the needs of our growing population.
Promote Conservation of Existing Water Supplies:
Texas’ water lines leak an average of 572,000 acre-feet of water per year—enough water to fill a major lake.
Proposition 6 will help repair and replace water infrastructure such as leaky pipes and support conservation awareness.
Help Local Communities and the Texas Economy:
Texas businesses need water from local communities to create and maintain jobs.
Proposition 6 will help expand water and wastewater infrastructure in local communities to preserve Texas’ vibrant economy.
