Texas Water Resources Institute

Texas Water Resources Institute

The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources work together to foster and communicate research and educational outreach programs focused on water and natural resource science and management issues in Texas and beyond. TWRI was designated as the water resources institute for the state of Texas in 1964 after Congress passed the Water Resources Research Act (WRRA). The WRRA established water resources institutes in each state and provided funds for research on solving water issues. Today, TWRI is one of 54 institutes in the National Institute for Water Resources, which serves as the contact between individual institutes and the U.S. Geological Survey.
