Fork of the Red River through Palo Duro Canyon, TX

As Texas faces droughts and terrible floods, NWNL hopes Texans will create and embrace regulatory, technological and grassroots solutions for the long-term. In 2012, NWNL documented watershed issues in rural Texas during its expedition in the Canadian and Red River Basins.

Today the Texas Rural Water Foundation announced the winners of its PH2OTOSTREAM photography contest. NWNL “swept the floor” with the winning submissions in each of the following categories:

· Rural Texas Water (Grand Prize Winner!)
· Water Now and Then
· Water Conservation / Drought

These pieces will be featured in the TRWF bi-monthly publication, Quench. NWNL is happy to be involved with the TRWF on raising awareness in cultivating progress and emphasizing the beauty of Texas watersheds.
