The Lower Colorado River Water Planning Group (LCRWPG) is one of 16 regional water planning groups established by the Texas Water Development Board to help develop and periodically update the state’s comprehensive water plan. LCRWPG members represent various interest groups throughout the region. Members are responsible for developing and updating the lower Colorado River region, or Region K, long-range water plan. Regional water plans are included in the State Water Plan. LCRA is a member of the planning group, acting as its administrative agency to manage records and as its political subdivision eligible to apply for state grants.
The Lower Colorado Regional Water Planning Area, also known as Region K, is composed of all or parts of 14 counties, stretching from Mills County in the Hill Country southeast to the Gulf Coast. Counties include San Saba, Burnet, Llano, Mills, Blanco, Gillespie, Hays (partial), Williamson (partial), Travis, Bastrop, Fayette, Wharton (partial), Colorado and Matagorda. Most of the region lies in the Colorado River basin. Cities in the region include Austin, Bay City, Burnet, Pflugerville, Bastrop and Fredericksburg.
