Texans For Water Prop 6 supports passage of Proposition 6 on the November 5th, 2013 ballot and provides information on water needs, drought and the Texas State Water Plan.
Drought conditions in Texas cost out state’s businesses and workers billions of dollars in lost income every year and by doing nothing, those losses could grow to over $116 billion annually. In fact, by 2060 as many as half of all Texas residents could be without adequate water supplies during drought conditions.
Passage of Texas Water Prop 6 will set up a historic revolving loan program available to local governmental entities, dedicate a one-time investment to capitalize the loan program, and provide Texas voters the opportunity to approve a fiscally disciplined investment in our water future.

More than 73% of Texans voted YES on Prop 6 earlier this month, and water proponents statewide are giving thanks for Texans’ bipartisan approval of this historic investment in our state water plan.
A one-time investment that will provide water for generations, Prop 6 won the support of a diverse coalition of supporters, including the Texas Farm Bureau, the state’s oil and gas industry, environmental advocates and nearly every member of the Texas Legislature.
Supporters of Prop 6 cited many reasons for their endorsement of the measure, including the need to satisfy the future water demands of our rapidly growing state. Prop 6 proponents also expressed a desire to bolster Texas’ continued economic growth – growth that cannot be sustained without an adequate supply of clean, affordable water.
In an by David Barer of the Dallas Morning News, Heather Harward, Treasurer of the TX WATER, PROP 6,YES! campaign, said Proposition 6 “is a significant, historic piece of our water management puzzle.”
