LEGAL AND REGULATORY FRAMEWORK FOR
BRACKISH GROUNDWATER DESALINATION AND WATER RECYCLING IN TEXAS

The Texas A&M University School of Law Natural Resources Systems Spring 2020 Capstone Seminar students created a toolbox for entities in Texas building water desalination and water recycling facilities. Given Texas’ water scarcity, both water alternatives are highly sought after solutions and already in place in San Antonio and El Paso. These resources aim to compile the existing, available information on permitting in an organized and accessible fashion. The guides are designed to help regulators, utilities, and the private sector navigate the legal and regulatory framework, and identify required federal and local permits and other compliance criteria.
