Noted Texas water figure Carlos Rubinstein joins The Water Values Podcast this week to discuss a wide range of Texas water issues that you will easily recognize as applying to other areas of the country and world. Carlos explains the Texas water governance structure and water planning horizon. He explains the nuts and bolts of Texas’ innovative program for funding infrastructure and how projects involving public-private partnerships are eligible for incentives typically reserved for strictly municipal and other quasi-governmental entity projects, which has allowed Texas to better leverage private capital for water infrastructure.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • Carlos’ background and his work
  • Why the Texas Water Development Board was created
  • The duties of the Texas Water Development Board
  • The water infrastructure funding mechanisms made available in Texas
  • How Texas is developing its water supply strategies
