Austin - (October 20, 2011) - today TWDB approved by resolution $11,043,460 in financial assistance, consisting of a $9,961,460 loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, and a $1,082,000 grant from the Economically Distressed Areas Program to the NRA (Real County) to finance planning, acquisition, design and construction of first-time wastewater service to the City of Leakey and 11 surrounding subdivisions.
