the best opportunity for additional water

Trans Pecos

Texas' newest rain enhancement project made its inaugural seeding flights in May 2003. The Association consists of the Ward County Irrigation District and other political subdivisions within Culberson, Loving, Reeves, and Ward counties. Its target area in that part of Texas along and west of the Pecos River consists of 5.1 million acres. Trans-Pecos Weather Modification Association (TPWMA) owns and operates a C-band radar and ingests NEXRAD data from the Midland site. TPWMA is a non-randomized operational program for the primary purpose of increasing rainfall. Hail suppression is not an objective of the program.
