Financial Funding Allocated for Water Projects

The State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) was created by the Texas Legislature to provide affordable, ongoing state financial assistance for projects in the state water plan. The program helps communities develop cost-effective water supplies by providing low-interest loans, extended repayment terms, deferral of loan repayments, and incremental repurchase terms.   Approved projects may include conservation and reuse, desalinating groundwater and seawater, building new pipelines, developing reservoirs and well fields, and purchasing water rights, as well as numerous other strategies.  In the list of requirements, included are the completion of an Infrastructure Financing Survey, as well as, the adoption of a water conservation and drought contingency plan (for entities receiving assistance greater than $500,000).

Preservation of Wetlands and Waterfowl in Dallas

Jan 28

Preservation of Wetlands and Waterfowl in Dallas

Approximately 2.1 million ducks and geese migrate to the Texas Coast each fall and winter. They are attracted to the coastal marshes, inland freshwater wetlands, and harvested rice fields where they feed to acquire nutrients and build up energy reserves. Current data on waterfowl energy demands and food supply produced by available foraging habitat indicate a potential food shortage for much of the Gulf Coast. Wetlands improve the overall health of our environment by recharging and purifying groundwater, moderating floods, reducing soil erosion, and providing recreation. During flood events, the wetlands lower flood risk by providing an efficient path to convey water through the Dallas Floodway System. The most productive and desired vegetation communities in wetlands respond positively following a disturbance. Soil disturbance, such as disking, is the most important management action to promote the growth of desired plants that produce food for waterfowl. Many assistance programs are available for private landowners who are interested in developing and managing wetland habitats on their property. Depending on eligibility, some programs offer cost-share assistance to build and manage wetlands. The Texas Prairie Wetlands Project (TPWP) is a successful cost-share assistance program that develops wetland habitat on private land along the Texas Coast.  The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department offers technical guidance from local biologists to landowners interested in managing wetland habitat on their property.

San Antonio’s Water System and Discount Programs

San Antonio’s Water System and Discount Programs

San Antonio’s water and wastewater infrastructure is the massive system of pipes, water wells, pumps, storage tanks, treatment facilities, and pump stations that is mostly below ground. The city has more than 9,000 miles of water and sewer mains buried below the 560-square miles that San Antonio Water System serves – enough to stretch from South Texas to Australia. San Antonio Water System offers an Affordability Discount to its low-income residential customers who meet the income eligibility requirements. The discount will range from $3.63 to $14.35 per month. The amount of discount a customer receives is based upon the household size, household income and type of service provided. The Affordability Discount will be effective from the date of certification for two years. Customers who are certified to receive the discount this year will be required to recertify their income and family size prior to receiving the discount in future years. There are also other programs, such as the Water Saver Landscape coupon and educational programs that reach out to all area residents. Interesting fact: Did you know water pressure within the San Antonio service area can range from 35 to 175 pounds? High pressure can be controlled by a pressure-reducing valve (PRV) installed on the property owner’s side of the water meter.
