LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) – The following is a news release from the High Plains Underground Water District No. 1:

High Plains Underground Water Conservation District (HPWD) is now accepting requests for proposals (RFPs) for water conservation research, demonstration, and education project funding.

“Each year, HPWD funds a number of research and demonstration projects. We invite those with innovative ideas to submit requests for proposals. Our research and demonstration committee will evaluate each project for possible funding,” said Manager Jason Coleman. 

Since 2014, HPWD has provided supplemental funding for several research, demonstration, and education projects.
