The Edwards Aquifer Juggling Act - Conservation, Springs, Alternatives And Policy

The Texas Water Symposium is a joint effort of Schreiner University, Texas Tech University in Fredericksburg, the Hill Country Alliance and Texas Public Radio with additional support provided by the University of Texas at San Antonio. 

Moderating the discussion is Robert Potts, President of the Dixon Water Foundation. On the panel are Robert Puente, President and CEO of the San Antonio Water System and Doug Miller, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Edwards Aquifer Authority. The program was held on the UTSA 1604 campus on November 13, 2008.

Water, essential for life, is our most precious and valuable natural resource, but water supply is limited and under increasing pressure from a growing population. How will we protect this resource and plan for a sustainable future? There is a great need for a water-literate public; decisions being made today have far reaching and long lasting effects for our children and future generations.
