Conservation: Conserving Water in Texas

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

This is Passport to Texas

Legislators, alone, cannot ensure a future that provides an abundant supply of water for humans, fish and wildlife.

This month, as we observe the 10th anniversary of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine’s water issue, Executive Director, Carter Smith, reminds us that all Texans have a role to play when it comes to conserving this vital resource.

We all miss water when it’s not around. And ultimately we have to plan for those kinds of scenarios, and remember that the future of our water is a generational one.

But it’s also a very personal one.

And every one of us can take responsible actions to help contribute to the future health of our water. It doesn’t matter where we live. Big cities or small cities, in the countryside or in a suburban neighborhood.

We can make choices with respect to how much water we use, what kind of appliances we choose to buy, what kind of grass we plant in our yard, the vegetation that we choose; making sure that water is not needlessly running off into our storm drains and into our rivers and creeks and streams.

And so, these are important things that every one of us as a citizen and steward can take to help ensure the vitality of this water for the future.
