Enhancing water supplies for now and the future.

Almost 100 desalination facilities across Texas are producing 138 million gallons of water per day.  Desalination offers a viable, drought-proof solution to water needs in the Lone Star State. Texas aquifers hold 2.7 billion acre-feet of brackish groundwater, while the Gulf of Mexico provides an inexhaustible supply of seawater. These new supplies also can free up existing water supplies for other uses and for in-stream flow.
