View the latest data on key water issues and resources

The world of water is always shifting. The dashboards below, some developed by Texas Living Waters and others hosted externally, are up-to-date windows into key issues and resources related to Texas water.

On paper, Texas is home to a robust set of proactive, adaptive protections of freshwater flow levels in river basins and bays and estuaries. In practice, these protections vary greatly between basins and bays.

Dive into our up-to-date, one-of-a-kind dashboard to see the status of flow protections in each major individual basin in Texas.

Texas has some of the most progressive water conservation laws and policies in the United States yet water conservation implementation is local and initiatives are constantly evolving. For this reason it can be difficult to assess whether conservation efforts are continuing to advance statewide. In order to help keep track of this progress, the Texas Living Water Project developed the Texas Water Conservation Scorecard.

 The Scorecard explores one fundamental question: Are municipal water suppliers making their best effort to reduce per capita water use and in turn save water and money for Texans? By assessing all Texas utilities with over 3,300 connections the Scorecard seeks to determine how much they are doing to save our most precious resource – water.


The Color of Water Initiative was created by the Water Hub to build voice and visibility for people of color in the water movement. The project’s goal is to connect reporters with a more diverse set of experts, and build capacity for these experts to elevate the stories of their communities, which have often been left out of conversations around water.

From water access and drought response in the West to lead pipes and PFAS pollution in the Great Lakes; to recurring flooding and water infrastructure failures in the South, Color of Water members have deep expertise and first-hand experience on water challenges and solutions all across the country.
