THEIR WATER, OR OURS? (Posted By Mike Mecke)

Howdy folks, a little background – this is my first post to the new water blog “Water is Life!” That was my chosen program motto when serving as a Water Specialist for the Texas Water Resources Institute & the Extension Service out of Ft. Stockton from ’02 to ’08. It was also widely used by the San Antonio Water System where I worked as a Water Resources Planner and then as Coordinator for Agricultural Water Conservation for the previous decade. It fits our Texas situation! This is an earlier article that Ranch & Rural Living ran for me this last summer and I thought maybe some of you missed it or would like a chance to comment on it? If so, fire away. thanks, Mike
