Texas has been prone to cycles of drought for centuries, and there’s no reason to expect that basic pattern to change. But our state has changed, and its burgeoning population and economy are creating an increasingly unquenchable demand for water.

In this report, we visit the issue of drought, with a focus on the larger issue of Texas’ water supplies, an essential resource that can bolster our economic growth — or limit it.
