Submit Your Windmill and Water Tower Photos



Published:

The Texas Water Development Board, Texas Historical Commission, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are once again taking a summer road trip—and everyone is invited.

Be on the lookout for two iconic and important Texas water symbols that help define the story of Texas water: windmills and water towers.

A trio of Texas entities want those photos! It’s like a summer road trip with the Texas Water Development Board, Texas Historical Commission, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department — and everyone is invited.

Join the experience by posting your own photos of #TXwindmills and #TXwatertowers to Instagram. The program organizers will share photos and information throughout the month of July and featuring submitted photos, too. The road trip starts July 1. 

Windmills helped populate our great state by making water available in areas not supported by rivers and springs, and they remind us that the water beneath our feet continues to sustain vast swaths of the state and will continue to do so in the future. Water towers often depict local civic pride and give us a window into the heart of a community. They prompt us into a greater awareness that our water supply is finite and must be used responsibly.

Participate for the chance to win cool souvenirs (aka prizes). A random drawing will be held at the end of the campaign.

To participate:

1.    Follow @txwaterdevboard@txhistcomm, and @texasparkswildlife on Instagram

2.    Post your photos of #TXwindmills and #TXwatertowers (make sure your profile is public)

3.    Mention the location and tag
