 Take Care of Texas

Take Care of Texas LogoWith large sections of the state experiencing exceptional or extreme drought, it is crucial that Texans do their part to Take Care of Texas and conserve water. The TCEQ’s Take Care of Texas program demonstrates how to construct a rain barrel and harvest rainwater in your own yard. Homeowners and landowners can build simple or complex systems to capture, store and use rainwater to water their landscape plants.

You are welcome to come by Carnes Enterprise and see our 1150 gallon rainwater tank in action.
