About this book

No natural resource issue has greater significance for the future of Texas than water. The state's demand for water for municipal, industrial, agricultural, and recreational uses continues to grow exponentially, while the supply from rivers, lakes, aquifers, and reservoirs is limited. To help Texans manage their water resources today and plan for future needs, one of Texas' top water experts has compiled this authoritative overview of water issues in Texas.

"Water in Texas" covers all the major themes in water management and conservation: Living with a Limited Resource; The Molecule that Moves Mountains; A Texas Water Journey; The Gulf Shores of Texas; Who's Who in Water; Texas Water Law - A Blend of Two Cultures; Does Texas Have Enough Water?; Planning for the Future; What's in Your Water?; How Much is Water Worth?; and, Water is Our Legacy. Illustrated with colour photographs and maps, "Water in Texas" will be the essential resource for landowners, citizen activists, policymakers, and city planners.
