Water-Saving Ideas as Big as Texas

Texans are well-known for their big hats, big trucks and big hearts. State and local officials are hoping to add big water savings to that list.

On a recent visit to SAWS, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar was joined by State Sen. José Menéndez and SAWS President/CEO Robert R. Puente to remind residents of the need for continued water conservation, especially in light of this summer’s extended dry spell.

"A lack of water means a loss of jobs, a loss of tax revenue and a loss of economic opportunity," Hegar said. "As Texans, each of us must continue to do our part to conserve water."

"Water conversation needs to go beyond drought stages," Menéndez said. "It needs to become a lifestyle and a new way of thinking."

Water conservation tips developed by Texas Water Smart include:
