Group Meets at UT Dallas to Discuss Long-Term Water Planning
Feb. 25, 2008
State policymakers gathered Feb. 13 at UT Dallas for an organizational meeting of the Study Commission on Region C Water Supply.
The commission is charged with helping solve the problem of meeting the region's mounting water supply problem.
The region includes the cities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and includes about 25 percent of the state’s population.
Rapid population increase in the region is expected to outstrip growth in water supply by 2050, posing a threat to industry and the economy.
The commission, formed through legislation passed during the Legislature’s 80th session, includes State Sen. Florence Shapiro and State Reps. Jodie Laubenberg and Stephen Frost.
