We use it daily for cooking, bathing, cleaning, and flushing. But, did you know that you can’t live without water?
Though you may feel like flesh and bone, your body is made up of more than 60 percent of water. As a result, you can survive for weeks without food; but literally only days without water.
Fresh drinking water is a limited resource. As our populations continue to grow, will we have enough for everyone? Becoming aware of how you use water each day is the first step in ensuring our future. Education is the second step.
Water School is an Internet website designed specifically to answer your questions about water and the many issues and concerns associated with the future of this limited natural resource.
Use our search engine on the right and type in key words to find each entry on your subject of interest. Or, explore water issues by category from the list on the right.
Water School is also a dynamic resource continuously updated with information on Texas water issues and those specific to the Brazos River basin.
Designed as a blog site, Water School allows you to post your comments, additions or questions on many of the topics. You may also email the topics to others interested in these issues or subscribe to topics so that you are notified when additions or comments or are made.
We invite your comments and recommendations on how we might improve Water School to better serve you. Click here
