New txH2O covers urban water issues
What if one day you turn on your kitchen faucet and nothing comes out? The new issue of txH2O opens with this question and covers everything from water conservation on the Texas A&M University campus to the science behind whether healthy lawns should always appear “jalapeño green.”
Texas’ urban water outlook includes increased demand and decreased supplies, and the fall 2013 txH2O takes a look at municipal water suppliers coping with declining supplies, experts promoting graywater use and policymakers incentivizing conservation. Mussel researchers with the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources also discuss the importance of freshwater mussels in the new issue.
The new issue is available online at twri.tamu.edu/txh2o. Print subscribers will receive their copies soon, and free subscriptions to the digital version of the magazine are available at twri.tamu.edu/publications/subscribe.
