HCA Executive Director, Katherine Romans, discusses water issues facing our region in this week’s Trib+Water Q&A.
“The Hill Country is really a region of extremes, where it goes from serious droughts to catastrophic flooding in an incredibly short period of time. We’re also seeing increased population growth; it’s projected to double over the next 35 years or so. The biggest challenge is going to be keeping people aware of the limitations of water resources. It’s easy to engage the public on water management when we’re in the midst of a multi-year drought. But keeping folks engaged when lakes are full presents bigger challenges.”
