Water is for Fighting Over
A Compilation of Articles on
Water Resource Management in Texas

by Chris O’Shea Roper and Tom Linton, PhD

water-cover-340wThe authors have worked to document what has become a large and complex set of rules, regulations, plans and systems for dealing with the water needs of a large state with an ever growing population. The title of the collection comes from a much used phrase – of undocumented origin – “Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.” The articles have appeared in newspapers across Southeast Texas and parts of the Hill Country. The book seeks to inform readers of the kinds of challenges to water supply and demand that the future holds.

Chris O’Shea Roper is a freelance writer and editor, having collaborated on over 50 books, numerous papers, and over 100 news articles. She writes often on coastal ecological issues.

Thomas L. Linton, PhD is a marine scientist with 30 years of experience in the field as a marine resource manager, teacher and researcher. He has actively supported the creation of legislation to protect and conserve both coastal zones and river basins in the United States and abroad.
