PSA: TEXAS DROUGHT
Alex Vuchkov, Shay Johnson, Mackenzie Davis
Texans! Pay attention!
Produces water for 2 million people in Texas.
Main water source for many cities farmers and power plants in central Texas.
6 Highland Lakes
In 2010 Texas agriculture industries used 50% of their water from these lakes.
why should Texas water be conserved and how?
Texas water should be conserved because, well... water is important! We use it for almost everything we do. We drink it, our pets drink it, we water our plants, wash the dishes, wash our cars, ect. Imagine your life without water? You wouldn't survive...literally! 96% of Texans exceed their recommended daily water usage (65 gallons per day). We need to start using less water. If the issue gets too big and out of hand, we might have to make some sacrifices as a state. This might include shutting down public pools, or making them available for a shorter amount of time so we can use the water from the pool and turn it into fresh drinking water for each individual community. Another way we can do this is to persuade the government into donating a bigger percentage of our taxes to water funding! IF were running out of water, we have to do whatever it takes to regain it!
