Panelists from this Speaker Series event included Greg Meszaros, the Director of Austin Water Utility, and John Hofmann, Executive VP with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), where they answered questions addressing water planning and climate change, including : What do recent rains mean for the drought? How will climate change affect our region?
What are Austin Water and LCRA doing to preserve our water resources?  Austin and Central Texas are booming. Is there enough water for everyone? How about in 25 years when our population is expected to double?
