Charles R. Porter speaks on Texas water issues

The battle over water rights in Texas began in 1718, when the Spanish established San Antonio’s municipal water system. With a view to the past and an eye on the future, historian and water expert Charles R. Porter,  Jr. examines water use, its limited supply, and implications for conflicting claims today.

Porter is the author of Spanish Water, Anglo Water; and the upcoming Water Rights in Texas, published by Texas A&M University Consortium Press.
