The Water Conservation Advisory Council created the Blue Legacy Awards to recognize responsible management of our water resources and to showcase examples of effective water stewardship. Texas leaders have long recognized that water conservation is an important part of planning to meet future needs. Communities and businesses across Texas have shown conservation programs to be a cost effective method of meeting increased water demands while postponing expensive supply or capacity expansion. Conserving water is therefore an investment that benefits all Texans.

The Water Conservation Advisory Council promotes Blue Legacy Award winners as credible spokespersons, sharing their success stories and encouraging others in the industry to improve their water conservation practices. The awards spread the message that efficient use of our shared water resources is critical to ensuring a prosperous future for Texas.
