The WCIWA is currently facilitating the "TTK" 319 Grant for the Turtle Creek, Turman Creek, and Kelley Bayou watersheds. This grant began in August 2013 and will continue through April 2019, thanks to additional 319 Implementation funds. Interested individuals are always welcome to join our TTK Advisory Committee or email list. Please contact us to learn more! At this stage, the cost-share program is underway!
