THE voice for water recycling in Texas.

Planning for the Future

Early voting has begun in Texas. While the focus has been on the presidential contest, of arguably more importance to leaders in the recycling industry are state races such as those for the Railroad Commission and state legislature. For more information on voting in the Nov. 8 general election, visit the Secretary of State's page for sample ballots, a listing of all candidates, and other helpful info. Make sure you get out and vote!

Just after the 85th legislature is sworn in, TXWRA Chair Brent Halldorson (Fountain Quail) will lead a panel of industry leaders through a discussion case studies covering in-field recycling, infrastructure, and call-out services for the Produced Water Society. Inform yourself on new technologies and trend so you can deepen your member relationship with TXWRA by helping us advocate during the legislative session.

Recycling is an important, cost-effective part of water conservation efforts. TXWRA encourages all technologies in the effort to increase adoption of water recycling. We thank all our members for your tireless support.
