first cloud seeding project began in 1971 in West Texas. In
1995, several counties
in that area formed a weather modification association. To
date, there are eight regions
that have weather modification programs.
All organizations that conduct cloud-seeding activities, or firms that contract for
cloud-seeding services, hold a weather-modification license and permit from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). The American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) have issued policy statements on weather modification that attest to the efficacy of existing technology to enhance precipitation.
