AUSTIN – (December 19, 2019) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of $53,467 in loan forgiveness from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund to H2O Tech, Inc. (Harris County). The utility will use the assistance to finance construction costs associated with a water system transition project.

H2O Tech, Inc.’s system is located in the floodway, and repetitive flooding events have caused significant damage. With the assistance approved today, the utility will replace water meters and tie-in connections to an existing water line owned by the City of League City. Once complete, the utility will donate the water system to the City of League City and integrate the service area with the City’s municipal water supply.

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.
