For more than a century, rice farming has shaped the economy, environment and communities of the Texas Coastal plains. Here, along the banks of the Colorado River, families are stewards of the river.

Rice farming draws on Colorado River water to create a:

  • Safe, abundant and nutritious source of food
  • Source of jobs
  • Wetlands habitat for waterfowl and migrating birds
  • Multi-generational agrarian tradition and legacy

The Colorado Water Issues Committee was founded to protect this tradition.
