Friends of CTWC

Friends of CTWC is a non-profit organization that has been organized for the primary purpose of helping to guide efforts and raise funds to help address water needs and issues of the Lower Colorado River Basin.

Why are there TWO organizations?

Unlike Central Texas Water Coalition, Friends of CTWC is structured as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which means donations are tax deductible.

Members of the Board of Directors for Friends of CTWC, along with members of the CTWC Board of Directors, participated as stakeholders in formation of the new Water Management Plan approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in November 2015.
