TWRI celebrates World Water Day, focusing on the value of water

World Water Day, held every year on March 22, aims to celebrate water and bring awareness to the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.

The theme of this year’s World Water Day is about what water means to people, its true value and how we can become better stewards of this resource.

Restoring and protecting the state’s water supply is one of the three main objectives of the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI).

TWRI is also committed to protecting water beyond the state boundary on regional and international scales.

Regionally, TWRI is involved in the Ogallala Water Coordinated Agriculture Project, a multi-disciplinary collaborative effort, between eight states in the high plains region focused on developing and sharing best management practices for optimizing water use across the Ogallala region.

On an international level, TWRI participates in the Permanent Forum of Binational Waters, led by Rosario Sanchez, Ph.D, a senior research scientist at TWRI. This forum was established to promote and implement collaborative efforts across and along the Texas-Mexico border through a network of specialists, academics, citizens and scientists.
