Texas Water Symposium discusses fracking


Essential for life, water is the Texas Hill Country's most precious and valuable natural resource.

However, the water supply is limited and under increasing pressure from a growing population.

How can the resource be protected to ensure its future sustainability?

The 2011-2012 Texas Water Symposium Series provides perspectives from policy makers, scientists, water resource experts and regional leaders. Session 3 will be held at 7 pm, Thursday, April 12, at the Schreiner University, Cailloux Campus Activity Center, in Kerrville.

The topic will be "Fracking and the Energy-Water Nexus - A look at Every Aspect Surrounding This Timely Issue" with panelists Cyrus Reed, Sierra Club; and Ken Rainwater, TTU Water Resources Center, among others.

Each session is free and open to the public. The hour-long program will be followed by a discussion and question and answer period.

The events are recorded and aired on Texas Public Radio one week later.

Audio of the program can be accessed on the Newsmaker Hour program at
