Keeping Texans From Going Thirsty
Building on a 2012 report examining the economic impact of the Texas drought, Comptroller Susan Combs today released a new report recommending solutions for quenching state water needs.
“Texas Water Report: Going Deeper for the Solution” (PDF) details water scarcity issues that threaten our economic health. It examines promising approaches for augmenting our water supply and proposes prizes that would encourage practical answers for Texas’ growing thirst.
When you visit the Texas Water Report site, we hope you will also take the opportunity to watch“Will Our Cup Run Empty? The State of Texas’ Water.” The video spotlights the critical need for additional conversation and policy addressing Texas water issues.
