We aim to build a future of clean, flowing water for all texans

Texas has an uncertain water future.

The population in Texas is expected to double in the next three decades. Where will we get the water to sustain that growth, especially during droughts?

We’re working toward a solution.

We are harnessing the power of market-based transactions and technological innovation to achieve long-lasting water supplies for all Texans, using all sources of water, including rainwater, wastewater and groundwater.

Our Objectives

Texas Water Trade has the skills and the experience to point Texas towards a more sustainable water future.
