Why Texas Water Smart?

Due to the extreme drought in 2010, water supplies were diminishing at an unprecedented rate, and cities and other water suppliers were being forced to implement water-use restrictions that impacted our homes and businesses. Texas Water Smart formed by green industry professional, water suppliers, and elected officials to educate families and businesses about easy and efficient ways to conserve.

Recently, rains have increased, but Texans have learned an important lesson — our climate is variable and access to water is not guaranteed. The Texas Water Smart program continues to support and educate Texans in their effort to voluntarily conserve, especially in their outdoor areas and landscapes.
