Water Supply is pleased to announce the call for papers for our next Special Issue on Integrated Management of Rivers and Reservoirs. Call for Papers: Integrated Water Management for Enhanced Water Quality and Reuse to Create a Sustainable Future. This report articulates the close link between water and the economy and makes the case that investing in water management and sanitation services is absolutely essential for the eradication of poverty and for enabling sustained economic growth.

The report also brings to the forefront direct and indirect costs related to inaction, the costs of action and cost-benefit comparisons. Water for Texasthe population in Texas is expected to grow to about 46 million byor more than double what it was in With this population, the supply of reclaimed water will grow and will become a more available supply.

Texas is a bellwether for water debates across the nation as a whole, as journalist Seamus McGraw argues in his new book, “A Thirsty Land: The Making of an American Water Crisis.” “Every possible manifestation of a looming water crisis across the United States can be found somewhere in Texas,” McGraw says.
