About the Authority


In 2001, the 77th Legislature enacted Senate Bill 2 establishing the Texas Instream Flow Program (TIFP) to define “appropriate methodologies for determining flow conditions in the state’s rivers and streams necessary to support a sound ecological environment” (Texas Water Code §16.059). In July 2004, the Texas Water Development Board, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, tasked with implementation of the Texas Instream Flow Program, contracted with the Sabine River Authority of Texas for assistance in the Lower Sabine River Priority Instream Flow Study (Lower Sabine IFS), intended to study the instream flow needs of the Sabine River from Toledo Bend to its mouth at Sabine Lake. The Lower Sabine IFS was among the first tier of instream flow studies to be initiated.
