In the face of rapid population growth and a warming climate, Texas' water resources have never been under such intense pressure.
The Texas Living Waters Project works to ensure that Texas has enough fresh water for people and wildlife. With our partner, the Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club, the National Wildlife Federation works to reform the way Texas manages and uses its fresh water at the state and local level.
Since 2001, this award-winning coalition has worked to protect vulnerable wildlife habitats and drinking water supplies while promoting increased water efficiency and educating the public and policymakers.
Based out of the National Wildlife Federation's South Central Regional Center, our staff works with scientists, stakeholders, and citizen groups to make sure the new stakeholder-driven process incorporates good science and guarantees sufficient water for Texas rivers and bays.
