Episode #22 — 09 March 2021 Is Texas Water Crisis a Harbinger of Climate Risk?

with Erin Bonney Casey

This discussion delves into the water crisis in Texas, climate, and what climatic events could mean for sustainable water management going forward. Over the last two weeks, Texas has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. More than 14 million people have been impacted by a freeze-out that was catalyzed by a failure of the energy and power sectors.  The result has been water main breaks, boil water advisories, and flooded homes.

The Texas blackout of 2021 is not a 100-year event. Bluefield’s Reese Tisdale and Erin Bonney Casey consider what has happened in the Lone Star State and how it signals real concerns for the future. Industry, municipalities, and water sector stakeholders will be forced to take water management into their own hands.
