Are there exceptions to the need for a water permit in Texas?

Yes, there are exceptions to the need for a surface water permit or contact to access water in Texas.  The Texas Water Code states four “exempt uses” under which water may be made available without the need for a permit or contract.  These are domestic and livestock use, wildlife management, and emergency use.
