Water Conservation Advisory Council

Call for Member Nominations — due July 8, 2019

Senate Bill 3 and House Bill 4, as passed by the 80th Texas Legislature in 2007, directs the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to appoint a Water Conservation Advisory Council (Council) members to serve as expert resources in water conservation to state government and the public. To assist the TWDB in selecting the most appropriate individuals for Council membership, we request your consideration of providing a nomination for individuals to represent each of the interest groups listed below. These terms will expire in August 2025.

  • Groundwater Conservation Districts
  • Irrigation Districts
  • Institutional Water Users
  • Professional Organizations Focused on Water Conservation
  • Agricultural Groups
  • Mining and Recovery of Minerals
  • Water Control and Improvement Districts

One individual will be selected for each of these interest groups. The member will be selected based on their individual commitment to and expertise in water conservation, in addition to their affiliation with the interest group. The Council meets on at least a quarterly basis and at times may meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. In addition, Council members will need to devote time to Council activities outside of the meetings.

Please provide nomination information, including a brief bio on the individual and their contact information (email, phone number, and mailing address) to Josh Sendejar by e-mail at josh.sendejar@twdb.texas.gov or via mail at the following address:
