We need your help
to keep water in the lakes.

Become a Guardian of the Lakes member and help the Central Texas Water Coalition sustain its fight to protect the lakes.

CTWC is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the interests of the businesses and residents in the Highland Lakes region. We are the only organization committed to continually monitoring and engaging with the entities that control water management and policy in the state. Our mission is to preserve the Highland Lakes – an irreplaceable natural resource supplying water to over 2 million central Texas residents. CTWC takes a broad-based multidisciplinary approach to water management based on science, data, and best practices. 

We rely on donations from area residents and municipalities to cover the cost of hiring hydrology experts, water attorneys, and coordinating regulatory and legislative representation. Without the support of dedicated individuals like you, we would not be able to continue our work and keep water issues on the top of everyone’s agenda.

What is it worth to you to keep water in the lakes?

CTWC continues to work for regulatory and legislative changes to prevent a recurrence of the 2011 draining of Lakes Buchanan and Travis for downstream agricultural use. We’ve made progress but will need an even stronger voice in the future since those who oppose our efforts are well-funded and organized.

A contribution to CTWC is an investment toward keeping water in the lakes. Your recurring contribution will help sustain ongoing efforts to keep our water supply safe, our businesses healthy and our economy strong. Your donation will help ensure we have the resources to counter those who want to drain the lakes to flood rice fields.

Pledge to help us protect your interests and ensure receding shorelines don’t become the norm.

“Making a $15 monthly pledge is a wise move for anyone living on the lake. I’m proud to support this effort, and I’m encouraging my neighbors to do the same.”

Frank Closner, Lake Buchanan

“My business relies on there being water in the lakes. Pledging $100 a month to support the CTWC’s efforts to keep the lakes from being drained again is a smart investment for my business and anyone whose livelihood depends on the lakes.”

Pete Clark, Business Owner

“My wife and I contribute to CTWC to support its efforts to keep the lakes full and our economy vibrant. Join your neighbors for as little as $10 a month to safeguard our water supplies.”

Glenn DaGian, Lake Travis
