Texas Comptroller Susan Combs Releases Texas Water Report

Texas Comptroller’s Office

A state officeholder has released a new water report examining challenges facing Texas.

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs released the report, which highlighted water issues in the state and offered several recommendations to the Texas Legislature to further stretch existing water supplies.

Combs released the report, titled “Texas Water Report: Going Deeper for the Solution,” which revisits the effects of recent drought conditions, and examines approaches to help supplement the state’s water supply.

“Texas has been prone to cycles of drought for centuries, and there is no reason to expect that basic pattern to change,” said Combs. “Yet our state has changed, and its booming population and economy are creating an increasingly unquenchable demand for water.”

Combs recommends that the Texas Legislature establish a prize framework to reward those who develop proven new, cheap sources of drinking water. She makes a number of other recommendations in the report as well.

Texas State Senator Robert Duncan weighed in, saying “Although we tend to point to the historic drought as a singular cause for our water problems today, we’re not blameless. Moreover, there exists no single bullet solution.”

Duncan continued, saying “To make matters more complicated, Texas is so geographically and meteorologically diverse, that what may work in one part of the state would be ineffective in another. That is why it is so critical that the Legislature continue to promote conservation and innovation for municipal, industrial, and agricultural water uses.”
