Panel to discuss water rights
A panel discussion on surface water rights will take place Saturday, April 5, as part of the 137th annual Cattle Raisers Convention. The panel is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio.
Dr. Bryan Shaw, chairman, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and Jim Bradbury, one of the state’s leading attorneys on water and environmental law, will serve as panelists. Jim Malewitz, energy reporter for the Texas Tribune, will moderate.
“Texas has faced a record drought now for several years, which has created a severe lack of surface water in the state,” said Pete Bonds, rancher and Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association president. “And while we’re short on water, the demand for surface water continues to grow.”
“How exactly this will affect landowners’ surface water rights and what we should be concerned about for the future of surface water will be some of the questions answered during this in-depth discussion,” Bonds continued.
The 137th Cattle Raisers Convention is Friday through Sunday, April 4-6. Highlights of the convention include the Cattle Raisers Expo, the School for Successful Ranching, and educational sessions focused on a number of issues critical to the Texas cattle industry.
