As we struggle to meet water resource challenges, what is the proper role that government should play regarding land development and other traditionally unregulated issues, in order to protect stream flows and the private property rights of landowners? All are potentially impacted by water marketing and increased withdrawals from aquifers. Stay tuned for the Texas Water Symposium, presented by the Hill Country Alliance, Schreiner University, and Texas Tech University, and recorded on the campus of Schreiner University in Kerrville.

The panel features Joseph B.C. Fitzsimons, Sharlene Leurig and Real County Judge Garry Merritt.  The moderator of the discussion, Weir Labatt, introduces each speaker throughout the program.
