Energy and Environment Reporting for Texas

Coming Friday: A Special Report on the Drought

This Friday we’ll be bringing you a special report, Life By the Drop: Drought, Water and the Future of Texas, a collaboration of StateImpact Texas, KUT News, and Texas Monthly.

Life By the Drop is a close look at the state of water and drought in Texas, looking both to the past and the future for answers on how the state can manage a growing population amid a shrinking water supply.

On Friday at 3 p.m., KUT 90.5 FM will air a one-hour documentary on the drought, hosted by Texas Monthly editor Jake Silverstein and produced by KUT News and StateImpact Texas. The program will air again at 7 p.m. on Monday, and you’ll also be able to hear the entire documentary here and on other public radio stations throughout the state.

Starting next week, each day we’ll individually bring you one of the features from the documentary, including reports from NPR’s John Burnett, an interview with Texas state photographer Wyman Meinzer, and audio reports from StateImpact Texas and KUT News. We’ll also have some web extras here at StateImpact Texas, with audio slideshows, interviews and more.

And you can pick up a copy of the July issue of Texas Monthly to read the stories from “Life By the Drop” as well. It hits newsstands Thursday.
