The Lavaca-Navidad River Authority was established to develop, conserve and protect the water resources of the Lavaca Basin.

The Palmetto Bend Project, commonly referred to as Lake Texana, was authorized by Congress to provide a reliable water supply for municipal, industrial and environmental interests and to develop and enhance fish and wildlife resources and to enhance and provide public recreation opportunities.  LNRA manages these various competing interests through operational and management decisions designed to protect the integrity of Lavaca Basin, Lake Texana and the Lands comprising the Palmetto Bend Project.

The mission of the Lavaca-Navidad River Authority is to manage, conserve, and protect the natural resources of the Lavaca Basin in a responsible manner that provides opportunities for growth and benefits the public.
