Drought Survival Kit
Think the Texas drought is over? Maybe not… History shows that drought is part of Texas’ normal water cycle. Don’t let the May 2015 rains and full reservoirs lull us into complacency! Wise water conservation habits help people and wildlife in times of plenty and in drought!
We've developed this Drought Survival Kit as your online resource.
