Advocacy for a drought-proof water supply.

Detail of Austin Capitol, Texas, U.S.A.Texas Desalination Association was formed as an advocacy group in order to address changes in desalination policy and permitting required to assure the option of a drought-proof water supply.

In the early days, not much was known about brackish and marine waters, so development opportunities for the public good were limited. Through the leadership, vision and direction of its Board and members, TexasDesal is focused on policy and law-making that will make a difference and adheres to the science and economic common-sense, so needed by Texas communities and their industries.

Your support of TexasDesal translates directly into initiatives with elected officials and government agencies that will result in the intelligent and responsible application of our abundant and sustainable natural resources.

We look forward to your participation!
