Description

The intrastate Red River Compact Commission represents Texas on the interstate Red River Compact Commission to ensure that Texas receives its equitable share of quality water from the Red River and its tributaries as apportioned by the Compact. The Compact includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.

History

The Texas intrastate Red River Compact Commission (RRCC) is authorized by Chapter 46 of the Texas Water Code. The Compact was signed by representatives of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and the United States on May 12, 1978. The Compact has been ratified by each state, approved by Congress, and signed by the President. Thus, the Compact represents both state and federal law. The Compact allocates the waters of the Red River and its tributaries between the four states and establishes an interstate Red River Compact Commission to administer the Compact. Texas is represented on the interstate Red River Compact Commission by the Executive Director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and by one commissioner who is appointed by the governor for a term of six years.
