AUSTIN  (March 24, 2014) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is alerting citizens that an automated phone campaign using TWDB's name and website is taking place without the agency's cooperation. According to reports, the phone calls are directing listeners to TWDB's website at www.twdb.texas.gov.

TWDB is not affiliated with these calls, nor do we know who is sponsoring them. The calls are originating from 903-686-9527. If citizens have questions about their local watering schedules or restrictions, they should contact their local water utility.

The TWDB is the state agency charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional planning, and preparing the state water plan for the development of the state's water resources. The TWDB administers cost-effective financial assistance programs for the construction of water supply, wastewater treatment, flood control, and agricultural water conservation projects.
