The Southwest Texas Rain Enhancement (SWTREA) is a weather modification project located in Southwest Texas and has been operating since 1999. It is one of four of its kind operating in the state of Texas. It is a four county target area consisting of Zavala, Dimmit, LaSalle, and Webb counties. Weather modification operations occur in this four county target area from March 15th to November 15th. Additionally, Uvalde County is operated by the SWTREA for the Edward Aquifer Authority (EAA) during the months of May through September. A project map can be found here, where the target area is outlined in yellow. The project operates 24 hours a day and conducts both rain enhancement and hail suppression activities. Look around the site and learn more about our project and weather modification in general!
In the United States, cloud seeding is used to increase precipitation in areas experiencing drought, to reduce the size of hailstones that form in thunderstorms, and to reduce the amount of fog in and around airports. Cloud seeding is also occasionally used by major ski resorts to induce snowfall. Eleven western states and one Canadian province (Alberta) have ongoing weather modification operational programs . In January 2006, an $8.8 million cloud seeding project began in Wyoming to examine the effects of cloud seeding on snowfall over Wyoming's Medicine Bow, Sierra Madre, and Wind River mountain ranges.
A number of commercial companies, such as Aero Systems Incorporated , Atmospherics Incorporated , North American Weather Consultants , Weather Modification Incorporated , Weather Enhancement Technologies International , Seeding Operations and Atmospheric Research (SOAR) , offer weather modification services centered on cloud seeding.
