State regulators meet to discuss rain enhancement efforts

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 by Tai Moses

If you were unaware that the state of Texas has a Weather Modification Advisory Committee, you’re not alone. This mysterious but vital body is a subset of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation and serves to keep a sharp eye on all those who would manipulate the weather. There are a lot of rules regarding weather modification, and rightly so. Committee members will hear reports on rain-enhancement activities, weather modification projects, last year’s cloud seeding season, and more. If this piques your interest, you can view the entire meeting agenda here. If you want to know more about cloud seeding in Texas – and who wouldn’t – read the committee’s quite fascinating FAQ. The meeting is Thursday, June 6, at 10 a.m., at the TDLR North Austin campus, first-floor meeting room, 1106 Clayton Lane, Suite 125E. It will also be aired live on YouTube.
