Walker and Redmond: Water utilities can help Texas conservation efforts
Houston Chronicle, December 6, 2016
Ensuring Texas will have abundant water to meet the needs of both humans and wildlife is a huge challenge for the Lone Star State. Fortunately, all of us can play a role in reaching that goal because conserving water is one of the cheapest and most effective tools we have to protect our water supplies.
Many Texas water utilities are now taking this message to heart and are investing in conservation in a big way thanks to low-interest loans made available through the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) – a program that was created by the Texas Legislature and subsequently approved by voters in 2013.
