Creating New Water: Exploring the Options

Everyone knows we can't create water. But the definition of water we consider available for our use is expanding as technological advances and additional data are generated. In fact, a number of the alternative water supply strategies being examined in Texas hold considerable promise for helping to meet our growing water demands. But along with the promise of enhanced water supplies come the challenges and limitations that must be addressed.

The goal of this conference is to create an open forum for speakers and attendees to explore the true "water creating" potential including the challenges and limitations of the more popular of these alternative strategies. During the morning session panels of experts will discuss land stewardship and destination. In the afternoon, there will be presentation on rainwater catchment systems. The final panel of experts will delve into the topic of conservation. Conservation is just now gaining the momentum and appreciation it warrants as a way to help Texas manage its water supplies.
