It is most appropriate that we gather here in Texas, a state blessed with a vibrant economy and robust population growth, but still coming to terms with a searing drought. Here we get a glimpse of the daunting circumstances impacting water supply and security throughout the United States. This is a good time and place to consider how we often undervalue a resource and commodity that is so important in our lives. In this way we can secure our future water supplies while coping with all the risks, challenges and opportunities this entails.
