Hi Penny,
    There has been big fight over water in Texas for at least a decade.
We have many rivers in Texas, the ones containing the most volume of
water of course are in the central and east Texas wher most of the rain
is. Rainfall in Texas is 40-60 inches near the Louisanna Border to 5-10
inches in the west.
    The folks in the west have been trying for years to ship via pipeline
or canal what they perceive to be a surplus of water in the east.Very
expensive proposition. Which is the reason they cannot get a state wide
bond issue to pass inorder to finance it. Some people vote agaist it on
the tax issue. Some people vote against it because they fear that if some
of the surplus water is commmitted, it will stop development in central
or east Texas. The people on the Gulf Coast oppose it because with out
sufficent fresh water to replenish and recharge the bays that the bays
will become to salty and kill the nursery grounds and marsh grasses. The
whole bay ecosystem will crash. Thats' the price to make the desert
