August 26, 2011 | New Sources of Water for San Antonio



Some studies suggest that in less than 40 years 83 percent of Texans will not have an adequate supply of water in times of drought.  As we make our way through the worst one year drought in our states history San Antonio is reaching out to the other side of the planet for some ideas on how to continue providing a source of water for its citizens in 2050 and beyond.
Guests: Robert Puente, President/CEO San Antonio Water System and Express-News senior reporter, Tracy Idell Hamilton.

Share the water? How about share the infrastructure? I live less than a mile from one of the new Water Wells in Gonzales County. When the Well goes online, the water table will lower and my private water well will probably go dry. While the Well will pump water 70 miles to San Antonio, I have not heard any plans to make its water available to Nixon, 2 miles south of the Well. SAWS & Schertz-Seguin take our water supply, yet don't even allow us to purchase it back from them via a local pipeline. Your yards need water? Our cattle & chickens need water too.
