Purpose of the South Texas Weather Modification Association

Using aircraft, our goal is to add hydroscopic growth particles to clouds to encourage more precipitation to form. Benefits from additional precipitation include:

Increased agricultural production (both crop and livestock)

Decreased surface and ground water consumption Improved opportunities for economic stability and future growth

Enhanced landscape appearance Increased reservoir levels

Replenishment of aquifers Improved habitat conditions for wildlife Increased lake and river levels

Fire suppression.
