Texas Water Symposium

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.

The Texas Water Symposium series provides perspectives from policy makers, scientists, water resource experts and regional leaders.  Join us as we explore together, the complexity and challenges in providing water for Texans in this century.  Each session is free and open to the public.
