Texas Rural Water Association honors Rep. King

(Fort Worth) – The Texas Rural Water Association presented Texas State Representative Tracy King with the TRWA Friend of Rural Water Award on Thursday at the association’s Annual Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. Representative King is the 11th recipient of the honor in the association’s 43 year history.

The Friend of Rural Water Award is the association’s highest honor, which is given to people who have gone out of their way to preserve the way of life in rural Texas and protect Texas’ water resources. As Vice Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, Representative King played an integral part in the association’s efforts to protect the environment during the 82nd Session of the Texas Legislature.

“We chose Representative King for his steadfast support of our efforts to protect rural water supplies and ensure safe, clean drinking water for rural Texans,” said Tom Duck, the association’s executive director.

“Managing and protecting our water resources is one of the most critical issues facing Texas today,” said Representative Tracy King. “As we study this topic, I will continue my efforts to ensure that there is adequate water for agriculture, industry and the environment.”

Representing more than 800 communities, TRWA is dedicated to improving the quality of water for rural communities and protecting natural resources. TRWA is a nonprofit, grassroots organization promoting public health protection for rural communities and small municipalities.
