Enhancing Texas’ Water Supplies

Desalination offers a viable, drought-proof solution to water needs in the Lone Star State.

Nearly 100 inland desalination facilities across Texas produce 138 million gallons of water per day from the 2.7 billion acre-feet of brackish water in our aquifers. Seawater desal is coming soon to Texas along the Gulf Coast—stay tuned. These untapped, dependable waters can free up existing fresh water supplies for other uses and for in-stream flows — starting now and into the future.
