There is nothing more important than ensuring our springs, rivers and bays remain healthy for our kids, their kids and all the kids to come. The Texas Living Waters Project is working hard with limited resources to help protect, promote and provide fresh water for all the kids to come and all the years to come. We rely heavily on you to help us do this incredibly important work.
Imagine Texas without fresh water. Then think about your children, their children and all the children to come. If you think we can do better, become a FRIEND OF FRESH WATER.

Use water wisely and save money on your water bill. Take actions to reduce water use, both inside and outside your home.
Do you own land on a river or a TCEQ water right? If so, you can use that water right to keep that river flowing! You can help by donating all or a portion of your water right to a water trust or amending your right to protect water quality and wildlife habitat. Contact us for more information.
No TCEQ permit, no problem! Contact us for more information about volunteering to do your part to protect all landowners and wildlife that share your river.
Reduce water use beyond your home by encouraging conservation at your workplace, school or church.
Ask your home owners association, neighborhood group and local government to support water-wise landscaping initiatives and green infrastructure investments that will restore streams, capture storm water run-off, prevent flooding and reduce pollution.
Get involved in your region’s Water Planning Group, as either an active participant or by attending their public meetings.
Don’t underestimate the importance of reaching out to the decision-makers in your state and community. Making your voice heard can be as simple as a quick email or phone call to the right individual.
