The Upper Colorado River Authority (UCRA) was created in 1935 to protect the watershed of
Tom Green, Coke and other contiguous counties.   Effective September 1, 2017, UCRA's
boundaries were expanded via legislation to include Coke, Concho, Crockett, Glasscock, Irion,
Menard, Mitchell, Nolan, Reagan, Runnels, Schleicher, Sterling, Taylor and Tom Green counties. 
There are nine directors appointed by the Governor of Texas and represent the counties served
by the UCRA.   Directors meet on the last Tuesday of each month unless otherwise specified.  All
meetings are open to the public.

Prior to the 1990's, UCRA served primarily as a lending institution for local municipalities
seeking to make area water improvements.  While this continues to be a function of the
authority, UCRA has taken the lead role in the community by involvement and participation in
the Clean Rivers Program, EPA non-point source programming, special brush control projects,
bank stabilization efforts, storm water management, rural water supply and education and
outreach programming.   Due to the success of these endeavors, the UCRA has moved to the
forefront as a leader in water quality enhancement and preservation projects.

The UCRA is in a building located in historic Old Town, adjacent to the north Concho River in San
Angelo.  The building, which is over 100 years old, was designed by local renowned architect,
Oscar Ruffini.
