The mission of the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is to lead the state’s efforts in ensuring a secure water future for Texas and its citizens. Their mission is a vital part of Texas’ overall vision and the state’s mission and goals that relate to maintaining the viability of the state’s natural resources, health, and economic development.

To accomplish their goals of planning for the state’s water resources and providing affordable water and wastewater services, the TWDB provides water planning, data collection and dissemination, financial assistance, and technical assistance services to the citizens of Texas. The tremendous population growth that the state continues to experience and the recurrent threat of severe drought only intensify the need for the TWDB to accomplish its goals in an effective and efficient manner.
