Water Supplies Devastated by Drought
Wichita Falls Texas has been devastated by a three year drought and unless things change it is estimated they could run out of water within 2 years. Residents are cutting back on water usage, they have managed to reduce water usage by 1/3, but it still isn’t enough.

In response to the estimate, the city has built a 13-mile pipeline which connects the city’s wastewater plant directly to the plant where water is purified for drinking. The concept of “water reclamation” is not new; the Orange County Water District in California leads the way in the process.

The water goes through a three-step treatment process – microfiltration, to filter out all of the solids, oils and bacteria; reverse osmosis, where it is pushed through a fine plastic membrane to filter out viruses and pharmaceuticals; and lastly the water is treated with UV light to remove any remaining organic compounds.

The Hydrilla Debate of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes - The FWC, the state's lead agency for hydrilla control since July 1, 2008, faces a daunting challenge. It not only manages the spread of non-native hydrilla by spraying herbicides to maintain waterways for boating navigation and flood control. It also must consider the wants of Florida residents while keeping the best interests of wildlife foremost in its plans.
