Welcome to the TAWC Solutions Website
The Texas Alliance for Water Conservation (TAWC) is a producer-led water conservation demonstration funded by the State of Texas through the Texas Water Development Board. The TAWC in partnership with the Texas Coalition for Sustainable Integrated Systems Research (TeCSIS) at Texas Tech University provides for research, demonstration, and implementation to reduce water use from the Ogallala Aquifer while ensuring the continued economic viability of agriculture in the Texas High Plains.
This Demonstration Project is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of area producers from local counties within the demonstration area in cooperation with scientists from Texas Tech University College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, Texas A&M FARM Assistance Program, Agrilife Research and Extension, USDA-ARS and NRCS, and the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1.
The Texas Tech West Texas Mesonet provides the climate data that is used in the TAWC Solutions web-tools to provide no-cost web-based management tools that aid in improved management decisions based on available water and crop profitability scenarios and aids in determining the crops water needs during the growing season. Our goal is to use less water and maintain or increase profitability.
