The primary goal of the TexMesonet program is to compile a network of high-quality drought and flood data throughout the state of Texas. The network is especially useful to observe drought patterns, along with assisting both rural and urban irrigation practices. The information collected through our network includes;

  • temperature
  • precipitation
  • wind speed
  • relative humidity
  • barometric pressures
  • solar radiation
  • soil moisture
  • and much more!

Native Planet Education

District Staff composed an archive of plants native to North Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Using native plants in your landscape can reduce water usage for irrigation and is considered an imperative objective for lawns and gardens throughout this region. Native Texas plants have adapted to the North Texas climate and are drought-tolerant, encourage groundwater recharge, and thrive in most soils found throughout the area..
