SAVE TEXAS WATER
REYAAN TYLER KEVIN CHARLES
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
Texas has been known for it's heat, but this time it's the real deal. We are currently in the midst of a terrible drought that will evidently go down in history as the 2nd worst drought Texas has ever had. While excess heat is indeed negative, the true problem is with the water supply. According to TexasMonthly, by 2016, the water demand will be up 22%. Unfortunately, the water supply will be down 10%. This is a big fear for those working behind the scenes in the Texas Water Development Board, and it should be just as frightening for all of us as well.
