Take a look at our new Net Zero Water Toolkit.

Ensuring water security in the fast-growing Texas Triangle

The Texas Triangle – the region between Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston–is one of the fastest-growing regions in the country. Meeting the water demands of this dizzying growth without starving downstream communities of water they rely on for agriculture, industry and environmental flows cannot be achieved through water conservation alone. We need investments in reliable water supplies that truly add new water to our state’s portfolio. Texas Water Trade believes this can be achieved if we look at growth as a source of water – not just a source of demand.

Texas Water Trade is working with the private and public sectors to develop new supplies of sustainable, climate-resilient water through an approach known as Net Zero Water. Net Zero Water can be achieved in many ways, including buildings that harvest and reuse water resources onsite, from rainwater and air conditioning condensate to wastewater reuse. 

Texas Water Trade has been one of the state’s champions in advancing approaches to Net Zero Water. We played an integral role in the adoption of Austin’s onsite water and reclaimed water ordinances. We have enabled greenfield and retrofit projects across Texas to finance water reuse through PACE financing.  With our Real Estate Advisory Group and more than two dozen national reviewers, we have developed our Net Zero Water Toolkit, which aims to guide Texas property developers, Texas owner/operators and other professionals engaged in land development through the landscape of Net Zero Water, from design, to permitting, to maintenance.
