Protecting Water in the Texas Hill Country, By Jim Blackburn, TESPA President
Imagine the Texas Hill Country without water. No swimming holes. No beautiful valley vistas over clear, clean water. No seeps and springs.
Impossible you say? Maybe not, given the current race to mine groundwater that provides all our water supplies in the Hill Country. And if we don’t get serious about protecting our private groundwater and our public rivers, we will lose both. Mark my words.
