The West Texas Weather Modification Association is an Operational Cloud
Seeding program that operates over 6 million acres of land in West Texas.
The primary goal of the program is to enhance rainfall in convective
thunderstorms to help increase dry land crop revenues, decrease groundwater
consumption, save on irrigation cost and to help recharge area aquifers
while putting some water in area lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Since 2004,
the WTWMA has helped increase precipitation by 16%, which translates to an
additional 2.25" across the area. The WTWMA is funded by the local
groundwater conservation districts and the city of the San Angelo. As a
member of the Texas Weather Modification Association, which groups together
other programs such as the Panhandle Groundwater Conservation District, the
South Texas Weather Modification Association, the Edwards Aquifer Authority,
the Trans-Pecos Weather Modification Association among other, the WTWMA
continues to expand in its knowledge and abilities by continuing research
and development projects per the Texas Weather Modification Act of 1967.
