TCEQ Names Water Project Liaison
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), in response to a request from the governor’s office, has established a water project liaison within the TCEQ to assist the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) with implementing House Bill 4 (The State Water Plan funding bill from the 2013 session). The TCEQ has named Brian Christian as the liaison.
Mr. Christian will help the state take a leadership role in working with businesses, utilities, local governments, and citizens to prioritize and develop essential projects and water management strategies. Specifically, Mr. Christian will coordinate efforts with the TWDB to ensure the TCEQ attends regional water planning group meetings and provides solution-based assistance and support regarding water-supply development as well as other assistance as requested.
The water project liaison can be reached through the TCEQ’s Small Business and Environmental Assistance Division at 512-239-3100. Any cities with questions about H.B. 4 or the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas should feel free to contact Mr. Christian with questions.
