New issue of txH2O: Texas drought recovery - are we there yet?
The Texas Water Resources Institute has published the Summer 2012 issue of txH2O. This issue of the magazine spotlights the efforts of community water system operators, farmers and ranchers to recover from the historic 2011 drought. Experts speaking at the Texas Water Summit, organized by The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas, share their thoughts on securing Texas water for the future, and environmental flows experts discuss the importance of environmental flows regulations, particularly as illustrated by the recent drought. Heather Harward, executive director of H2O4TEXAS, answers questions about the organization and its promotion of Texas' state water plan implementation. The new Water Conservation and Technology Center and its director are also spotlighted.
