The Sustainability Of Texas Water

Recent heavy rain that caused flooding in Houston and other parts of the state has also replenished reservoirs. When it comes to our water supply, though, 60 percent of it comes from groundwater. This hour, guest host Lauren Silverman will talk about how water is managed in Texas with Sharlene Leurig, director of the Texas Environmental Flows Initiative. She writes about the topic for Our Desired Future, a multimedia project that looks at the sustainability of the state’s water supply.
