Starting it off with a little quiz. Before checking the links, can you guess Who Wears These Shoes?:
In local news, Matagorda County was soundly defeated in the recent Water Wars. The drought put the LCRA in the middle of battles involving Austin, Corpus Christi, and Bay City. The good news? They're breaking ground on an important reservoir this week. More here.
According to a Sept. 17 news release, the LCRA Board of Directors “took historic action to expand and protect the water supply of the lower Colorado River basin.” That action included giving final approval to the 40,000 acre-foot off-channel reservoir near Lane City. According to the release, the reservoir could be filled several times a year, adding up to 90,000 acre-feet of firm water to the region’s supply.
The new Tenaris plant near Van Vleck will provide a big boost to the county economy.
