Responsibly fulfilling our mission

As a steward of the lower Colorado River, LCRA protects the water and lands of the lower Colorado River basin and educates our customers about water and energy conservation.

Water protection
Protecting water quality in the Highland Lakes and river is a vital part of our mission. We manage a number of regulatory programs to protect the waters of the lower Colorado River basin.

Water conservation
We offer residential and commercial rebates, grants for water-efficiency projects and other resources.

Air quality
In addition to operating our electric generating facilities efficiently and in an environmentally responsible manner, we have committed millions of dollars to further improve emissions of our power plants.

Energy conservation
The POWERHOUSE™ Energy Investigation Program teaches school students and their families about energy use, generation and delivery. We offer the program to our wholesale electric customers, who sponsor the program at schools within their service areas.

Land management
We help private landowners become better stewards of their land through the LCRA Creekside Conservation Program.
