The drought caused a lot of problems over the summer and reminded a lot of people of the importance of water, especially for agriculture. However, now that the worst is (hopefully) over, people are going to start asking questions about preserving and protecting that water.
In Texas, the discussion regarding to water is now focusing on agriculture and irrigation. Over the last few days irrigation specialists at Texas A&M have been urging farmers to watch their irrigation at all times and also to avoid using it if possible.
This of course puts agriculture in the cross hairs for using too much water. In response, Texas Farm Bureau has released a list of the top 10 facts farmers should be prepared with as the discussion heats up. The facts are based on a study recently released by the Texas Water Resources Institute.
