Texas’s Comptroller is stressing the importance of water management for the State’s future prosperity.

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs released an analysis of the effects of the 2011 drought on the state, the state’s water resources, and solutions currently in use to help solve the water crisis.

“The Impact of the 2011 Drought and Beyond” has been released online by the Comptroller’s Office, and looks at water management solutions such as aquifer storage and recovery, the use of treated wastewater for irrigation, and the conversion of brackish groundwater into drinking water.

“Planning and managing water use will be of utmost importance for the state’s growth and prosperity,” said Combs. “Texas is prone to cycles of drought which makes it important for residents, businesses, and state and local governments to manage water use.”
