Many, LA (KPLC) - The Sabine River Authority will be holding a special call meeting to discuss out-of-state water sales from the Toledo Bend Reservoir.

Executive Director Warren Founds said it’s an informal meeting on issues and options for the board.

The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on April 13 at the Cypress Bend Resort at 2000 Cypress Bend Pkwy. Public participation is being encouraged by the board of commissioners.

The meeting will allow for public comments on the operations of the Toledo Bend Reservoir and the effects of potential large water sales.

In 2012 there was a meeting on water sales that was met with huge opposition, but Founds said things have changed since then. He said no action will be taken at the meeting.

Founds said any sale of water out of state would require numerous approvals from police juries to the governor.
