An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

Date: March 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs. Recognizing the importance of a reliable long-term water supply, the Dallas/Fort Worth region has invested heavily in reservoirs and transmission facilities over the past 50 years. Indeed, the dramatic population and employment growth enjoyed by the Metroplex over the past several decades would not have occurred absent an abundant and reliable supply of fresh water for residential and commercial uses. Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.
