LUBBOCK – (April 11, 2024) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of $1,565,000 to the City of Eastland (Eastland County) from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). The City will use the assistance for the construction of a water system improvement project.

The City could save approximately $466,000 over the life of the loan by using the DWSRF.

The City previously received funding for this project from the DWSRF in 2018. Due to an escalation in construction costs, the City requested additional funds to complete the construction of transmission line replacements to help address water loss in the system.

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