Texas Water Conservation Association 10th annual Texas Water Day in Washington, D.C.

The Texas Water Conservation Association (TWCA), through its Federal Affairs Committee and the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), has scheduled the 10th (Tenth) Annual Texas Water Day, which will take place February 4-6, 2014, in Washington, D.C.

Texas Congressional Members, key Congressional Committee Members and staff, leaders of Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation and USGS, and others will come to Capitol, Room HVC-201 in the Capitol Building, to comment on our Texas priority issues and, importantly to hear from us on those issues. This is our opportunity to ask questions and for the TWCA and TWDB delegation to make requests for assistance in addressing our priority water issues.

The Congressional Reception will be held on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, at 6:00 p.m., in Room B-339 of the Rayburn House Office Building. We urge you to invite your members of Congress to attend the reception.
