Life By the Drop is a close look at the state of water and drought in Texas, looking both to the past and the future for answers on how the state can manage a growing population amid a shrinking water supply.
KUT 90.5 FM aired a one-hour documentary on the drought, hosted by Texas Monthly editor Jake Silverstein and produced by KUT News and StateImpact Texas. The program will air again Thursday, July 12, and you’ll also be able to hear the entire documentary here and on other public radio stations throughout the state.
Each day this week, we’ll individually bring you one of the features from the documentary, including reports from NPR’s John Burnett, an interview with Texas state photographer Wyman Meinzer, and audio reports from StateImpact Texas and KUT News. We’ll also have some web extras at StateImpact Texas, with audio slideshows, interviews and more.
And you can pick up a copy of the July issue of Texas Monthly to read the stories from “Life By the Drop” as well. It hits newsstands Thursday.
