“Nearly 1,000 public water systems in Texas restricted water last year. Even now, after some winter rains, 17 systems are projected to run out of water in six months or less. The 2011 drought was the most intense one-year drought in Texas since at least 1895, when statewide weather records began. Losses reached $10 billion in crops, livestock and timber.” - Hari Sreenivasan in the PBS NewsHour segment (above) “Texas Towns Run Out of Water as Drought Takes its Toll.”
