The Upper Colorado River Authority (UCRA) was created in 1935 to protect the watershed of Tom Green, Coke and other contiguous counties.   UCRA's boundaries 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 to represent the counties served by the UCRA.   Directors meet on the last Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. 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 infrastructure improvements.  While this continues to be a function of the Authority, UCRA has taken the lead role in the community through involvement and participation in the Clean Rivers Program, EPA Nonpoint Source Pollution programming, special brush control projects, bank stabilization efforts, the TMDL program, 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.
