We attended the 6th annual Lone Star Water Forum, Saturday, October 4, 2014 in Brenham, Texas. The next several blog posts will be reporting about the information we heard at this event. Several eye opening points were made by political speakers currently in office here in Texas. When the dots from the speaking points they were making are connected, they paint a precarious picture for inexpensive water resources for the future of Texas.
“Good stewardship of land leaves open spaces in this state and is important for private property ownership” – Bill White, former mayor of Houston. This is important for sustainability in general. Surface water needs to be preserved and there needs to be respect for historical utilization rights with the end goal being not to deplete this resource completely. A well known fact is that Houston development is growing towards, not away from the Brazos over the next few years.
As always, comments and/or questions are always relevant and welcome.
