I've wondered - and asked my neighbors - the same. If all of these new water wells are tapping into essentially the same underground aquifer, how long can we reasonably expect that to hold out, especially when the well-owners' mindset seems pretty cavalier re: the quantity of water used.

I believe that this is not a short-term problem and we're going to have to rethink what lawns should look like in West Texas. Abandoning our suburban notion of lush, green fields of turf may end up being the most practical and responsible route to take.

Rob O, I'm surprised we don't see more gutters being installed on roof edges. Even small amounts of rain can add up if it's collected.
