NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE EAST TEXAS REGIONAL WATER PLANNING GROUP 2021 INITIALLY PREPARED REGIONAL WATER PLAN

Governor Abbott Allows Virtual & Telephonic Open Meetings to Maintain Government Transparency. As Texas works to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Governor granted the Office of the Attorney General’s Request for suspension of certain openmeeting statutes. This temporary suspension will allow for telephonic meetings of governmental bodies that are accessible to the public in an effort to reduce in-person meetings that assemble large groups of people.

Notice is hereby given that the East Texas Regional Water Planning Group (ETRWPG) is taking comment on and holding a public hearing via Telephonic Open Public Hearing for the East Texas Regional Water Planning Group (Region I) 2021 Initially Prepared Plan (IPP).
