Water Forward, Austin's Integrated Water Resources Plan (IWRP), is a collaborative effort led by Austin Water to provide a 100-year water supply and demand management plan for the City. Water Forward is supported by a task force made up of Mayor and Council appointees and representatives from various City departments.
The Integrated Water Resource Plan (IWRP) will provide a mid- and long-term evaluation of, and plan for, water supply and demand management options for the City of Austin in a regional water supply context. Through public outreach and coordination of efforts between City departments and the Austin Integrated Water Resource Planning Community Task Force, the IWRP offers a holistic and inclusive approach to water resource planning. The plan embraces an innovative and integrated water management process with the goal of ensuring a diversified, sustainable, and resilient water future, with strong emphasis on water conservation.
