About

The Mission

Texas Water Intelligence aims to harness data and build water domain awareness, with the hope of enhancing our ability to more sustainably and effectively manage Texas’s most precious natural resource. We present data in a clear and creative manner to bring perspective and challenge readers, in the hope of catalyzing productive discussions and advancing the debate about how to best manage Texas water resources. We’ll also occasionally pull in examples and analysis of water issues in other states, since water resource management challenges frequently cross state lines and require a multi-state mindset to develop solutions.
