MISSION, CURRENT STATUS, AND GOALS

The Texas Water Action Collaborative (TxWAC) matches companies and funders with conservation projects to positively benefit Texas’ water resources.

TxWAC is piloting in the Upper Trinity River Basin, expanding to the lower Trinity River Basin in Q4 of 2021 – Q1 of 2022, and expanding to another river basin in Texas by Q4 2022 to accelerate new investments in water conservation. Since March of 2021, the collaborative has:

  • announced TxWAC;
  • surveyed corporate and conservation stakeholders;
  • developed processes/frameworks for scoring and prioritizing projects by impact and importance;
  • and began corporate matching to foster connections and secure funding commitments.

The goals of the collaborative pilot are to:

  • Benefit the quality and volume of water of the Trinity River;
  • Spread awareness and education regarding the need for water conservation and projects that have succeeded;
  • Build collaborative relationships to align goals, metrics, and timelines between conservation organizations, corporate entities, and communities;
  • Create a matching methodology for funding, activity, measurement, and reporting of water conservation projects;
  • Build a replicable model for the entire Trinity River Basin and other Texas river systems.

Moving forward, the collaborative will continue to survey all stakeholders, refine the process/frameworks, and match incoming projects to interested funders.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

  • If you have a project/program that needs funding within the Trinity River Basin, please complete the Conservation Efforts Survey.
  • If you want to fund a project/program in the Trinity River Basin, please complete the Company/Funder Survey.
  • If you provide tools and services that provide research, metrics/data scoping, collection, reporting, etc. for conservation projects please complete this survey. Many conservation projects lack the tools and data needed to quantify impact. The information from this survey will be used to create a repository of organizations that provide tools and services, allowing all stakeholders to better navigate this space and find the right fit for their organization/business.

HOW IT STARTED

TxWAC was officially announced on World Water Day in March of 2021 after ongoing conversations and collaborations between conservation organizations and corporations in the Upper Trinity River Basin. Texan by Nature was pulled in to develop, facilitate, and operate TxWAC, using the successful model of the California Water Action Collaborative as inspiration.
