Central Texas saw plenty of rainfall this week, but is it just a drop in the bucket after years of drought? In part one of Capital Tonight’s special series on the state of Texas water, we checked in on drought conditions with representatives from Groundwater Management Area 10 in San Antonio.


Drought is just one of many things complicating water issues in Texas. We spoke to Tom Harrison of the Central Texas Water Coalition, John Dupnik from the Barton Springs / Edwards Aquifer Conservation District and water rights expert Charles Porter from St. Edward’s University about property rights, groundwater management and more.


Election day is just three weeks away, and people across the state are getting the word out about Proposition 6, which would allocate $2 billion toward the state’s water plan.

But more and more groups are coming together to urge Texans to vote against the measure, with the battle cry, “Nix Prop 6.”
