A future without water is no future at all

Fresh water is the lifeblood of Texas. That’s why Texas Living Waters exists – to ensure that Texas has the water it needs for thriving communities and healthy fish and wildlife.

We are a collaboration of conservation groups working since 2001 to transform the way we manage water.

We advocate for investments that allow traditionally underserved communities to secure reliable flood protection and water supply.

CLIMATE RESILIENCE

We strive for water management frameworks that comprehensively address climate change and ensure a resilient Texas for future generations.

WATER FOR WILDLIFE
