Last month’s Texas Water Symposium audio released
Friday, March 10, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
Last month, watershed protection planners descended on Texas State University in San Marcos and discussed the future of Texas’ beloved springs, creeks and rivers. Some of the key topics include how the rapidly growing state can meet its future water needs, how it will pay for it and what the legislature should be doing right now to address the issue. The panel also touched on the importance of the relationships between conservationists and local landowners in maintaining and protecting state waterways. In order to reach a wider audience than the initial 150 people who were in attendance on Feb. 24, the Hill Country Alliance, the nonprofit behind the effort, has made the audio available on the Texas Public Radio website.
