Texans For Clean Water was formally organized in 2013 when Mike Garver of Houston and Trammell Crow of Dallas joined forces to bring the problem of floatable debris in our waterways to state and local officials. The goal of Texans For Clean Water is to organize a statewide group of business leaders and local government jurisdictions through a common initiative. Restoring the viability of our waterways improves neighborhoods, brings recreational opportunities to our communities, and encourages economic growth.
Our research shows that Texans are increasingly worried about the amount of litter in our Texas waterways. We must do better to protect our beautiful Texas environment. Education and collaboration between the business community and the government are key to developing and adopting best practices to prevent storm water debris and litter from entering our waterways. Through our innovating rebate program, we plan to clean-up our Texas waterways and provide the taxpayer with a benefit in recycling.
