Charles Perry: Out Of Water In Ten Years?

Every community must have water to survive.  With that in mind, consider this prediction from state rep. Charles Perry.

“If we deplete the aquifer, then we have no life in West Texas, or anywhere for that matter that depends on it,” said Perry.  “There are certain areas in our region that will be out of water in less than ten years.   Up to the west-north-west  of our area, we’ve got  real water concerns up there.  So it’s not like a what-if scenario.  It’s a matter of when… it’s going to occur.”

For a West Texas legislator…

“That’s a tough issue.  It’s one that we have to take seriously.”
