In some parts of the state, watermasters allocate water between users and ensure compliance with water rights

The TCEQ administers water rights in Texas, issues new and amended water rights and certificates of adjudication, and cancels water rights. During times of water shortage the watermaster programs manage surface water and enforce water rights.
