Strategic Goals

Early Accomplishments: 2019-2021

  • Launched Texas Flows Fund with $900,000 of support, half of which has been allocated for water transactions delivering nearly 7,000 acre-feet of water in Galveston and Matagorda Bays
  • Built strong, effective partnerships in diverse geographies, including Galveston Bay, the Pecos River Basin and the Blanco River Basin through our Texas Water Market Makers
  • Established a voluntary water market resulting in the protection of 1,500 acre-feet of groundwater, with significant potential for more, in the Comanche Springs Management Zone of the Edwards-Trinity Aquifer in West Texas
  • Secured $500,000 in seed money to launch Vida Water, a subscription-based safe drinking water service for underserved populations in Texas
  • Prompted construction of onsite water reuse systems at Austin’s Permitting and Development Center, designed to generate 1.5 million gallons a year of water from onsite air conditioning condensate, rainwater and blackwater treatment

Five-Year Strategic Goals: 2022-2026

  • Together with our public, nonprofit and private partners, by the end of 2026, Texas Water Trade will have protected and restored at least an additional 50,000 acre-feet of water in priority aquifers, rivers and bays.
  • These freshwater flows will benefit thousands of acres of critical coastal wildlife habitat (terrestrial and submerged) and more than 100 miles of aquatic/riparian habitat in West Texas
  • Provide safe drinking water services to 50,000 Texans in at least three high-need communities
