Even after rains, facing long-term water needs
from The New York Times
The drought in West Texas is not over and experts say this perennially dry region must plan carefully. The two-year drought, the region's worst in more than half a century, has starkly exposed its vulnerability. Farmers, swimming pool cleaners, car wash operators and many others depend on ample water, and if supplies are short, jobs can be lost. Pressure is growing on the Legislature to address the problem when it meets next year, especially because the population continues to grow and West Texas is projected to become drier.
