Water Policy Forum Tonight at UT

texas-water-journal-forumNow that Texas voters have given the green light to put serious money towards new water projects in the state, where do we go from here? How will projects get prioritized and funded? Will conservation be a properly-sized piece of the pie? What should we expect from state leaders going forward?

Those are just a few of the subjects on tap tonight at a forum at the University of Texas at Austin, ‘Water, Politics, and Drought: Remaking Texas Water Policy.’ The non-profit organization Texas Water Journal and UT’s Environmental Science Institute are putting together the event, which is free and open to the public:
