Water Conservation & Supply

Water is the lifeblood of the Texas manufacturing sector, which is the state’s third largest water user. According to the 2017 State Water Plan, the sector’s needs are expected to increase 39 percent from 2020 to 2070. TAM supports Texas water policy that provides for the development of a safe, reliable water supply at a reasonable cost. TAM also supports legislation that eases regulatory access to the state’s surface and groundwater resources, including eliminating unnecessary hurdles or delays in the state’s water rights permitting process.
