Educational Resources

Perhaps no other natural resource in Texas has been more coveted, more haggled-over, more central to who we are and who we'll be, than water.

Please consider using these resources in community meetings, classrooms and discussions among family and friends. Little will have more impact on the future of our natural resources than your knowledge and wise decision-making about Texas' water resources. Thank you for helping educate others about these vital issues.
