This is serious. It affects you.

The Highland Lakes region is experiencing one of the worst droughts in recorded history. Past water management policies that fail to factor in the drought severity and its economic impact on local communities have made the problem worse. The same policies still include a huge price disparity among water customers that does little to encourage conservation among large agricultural users.

Changing times require a change in practice and policy.

Support the CTWC’s work to advocate for responsible water management policies, equitable pricing and greater conservation by all.
