1958If new sources of water are not found for San Antonio in the next four years, the city is going to be up a creek and a dry one at that. This was the contention today of R. A. Thompson Jr., general manager of the water board, as he outlined San Antonio's future water needs.
This was during the seven year drought in the 1950s. I've heard old timers say that when their children were growing up they didn't know what rain looked like. We have to be prepared for future droughts, not just naturally occurring ones, but more severe droughts that will be brought on by climate change. As the city grows the need to conserve our most important natural resource becomes even greater.
The San Antonio Water System is doing a pretty good job of encouraging water conservation but they can't do it without your help. Check out their website today to find out about rebates for low water use appliances and fixtures and for ways you can help conserve water.
