txH2O, a biannual magazine publication of the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) since 2005, features stories on current water resources research and outreach programs and priority water issues facing Texas. This month, Conservation Matters is beginning a new series, txH2O Highlights, that looks back at some of the previous articles that are still relevant today.
Our first txH2O Highlight is an explainer about groundwater: Groundwater 101. This article, from the Summer 2014 issue, outlines groundwater terms, groundwater administration in Texas and the state agencies involved in groundwater.
For example, do you know the difference between a confined and unconfined aquifer? Or what a GAM is? And just how the Railroad Commission of Texas is involved in groundwater?
