Marvin Nichols Reservoir Article

A text-only version of my article on the Marvin Nichols Reservoir controversy is now available online. The original version, with Russell's photos, is still on the newsstands in the July issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife.

Normally, I don't go around crowing about my own work, but I want to draw attention to Texas's reservoir controversy and the outrageous land grab by water hustlers and big city boosters.

Excellent article! This quote sums up a lot: “We have enough to maintain status quo, but we’re growing, and when some industry wants to move in and needs several thousand acre-feet of water, we don’t have it. We could do something on our own, but why would we want to do that if somebody else is willing to pay the full cost of building a lake?”

Thanks Matt!

A lot of folks seem more than happy to plunder other people's homes - especially if someone else will do the work.
