A Statewide Stewardship to Save Texas Water
Water Conservation is a mission and responsibility shared by many in the State of Texas. It is an interest and commitment shared between planners, managers, consumers, landowners, businesses and the citizens of Texas.
Texas is no stranger to drought. The Texas Water Development Board monitors conditions and provides assistance in times of drought as well as providing links to learn more about current conditions in Texas. See TWDB's Drought Resource page for additional information.
"Both the historic drought of the 1950s and the current drought in Texas have been significant catalysts to change in water conservation throughout the state. Leaders, communities and citizens have come together to help ensure that there are reliable water resources. The 2012 State Water Plan recommends 35% more acre-feet per year of water conservation savings than in 2010. The Water Conservation Advisory Council works diligently to develop and promote innovative water conservation strategies so that future generations in Texas will continue to enjoy plentiful drinking water."
