(Dallas, Texas – May 8, 2007) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded $578,300 to the Brazos River Authority for the West Fort Bend County Regional Drinking Water Plant. West Fort Bend County uses groundwater for its drinking water supply. Due to groundwater use, this area is experiencing severe subsidence of soils. As a result, the Fort Bend County Subsidence District is requiring the area to convert from the use of groundwater to surface water. The Brazos River Authority will use the grant for continued surface water conversion efforts.
