From Policy to Reality: Maximizing Urban Water Conservation in Texas
Ensuring that Texas is sustainable in the 21st century depends in large part on smart management of the state’s water resources. A central element of that challenge is improving the efficiency of water use in the rapidly growing urban areas of the state. More efficient water use technologies, more sophisticated understanding of water pricing and the ability to more carefully measure water use at both the individual and municipal level provide new opportunities to reach advanced levels of water use efficiency. This report highlights both the good and the “not-so-great” in a broad sampling of current municipal conservation plans.
