Staples launches ‘The Water Source’ online information tool
AUSTIN -- Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples has launched “The Water Source,” a new online tool to serve as a one-stop information portal for Texans to learn various facts about the ongoing drought, statewide water resources, and disaster assistance.
“The Water Source” provides Texans with a data source to learn about the ongoing drought and the fundamentals of Texas water policy, and to find resources for wildfire prevention and disaster assistance. In addition, users will find helpful news articles, information about reservoir levels, and the latest statewide drought conditions from the U.S. Drought Monitor. The site will also highlight great works and resources from fellow state agencies and the Texas Water Smart coalition.
Last spring, Staples and the Texas Water Smart coalition launched the Texas Water Smart initiative to encourage all Texans to adopt daily habits to save water.
“The historic drought conditions we have faced over the past few years reaffirm the absolute necessity to make water conservation a part of our daily lives,” Commissioner Staples said in a June 11 Texas Department of Agriculture press release. “It takes a commitment from all Texans to ensure there is sufficient water for future generations.”
