Alternative Water Management Strategies for the 2006 South Central Texas Regional Water Plan
The Edwards Aquifer is a sole-source aquifer for more than 1.3 million people in South Central Texas. If this resource is managed carefully, it can continue to provide drinking water to the area on a sustainable basis. The Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club believes that much of the identified water needs in Region L can be met through aggressive conservation and the use of aquifer storage and recovery. Several water resource alternatives are examined in this report that will potentially satisfy a large portion of water demands in both wet and dry years.
