The water utility industry has seen a major shift over the past few years as the line between water and wastewater begins to blur and people embrace the idea of “One Water.”

From small to large utilities, there are many unique water stories throughout Texas, each with their own successes, failures and innovative approaches to gain community support and acceptance.

In this video, in a collaborative effort by Texas AWWA and WEAT, and using a collaborative, storytelling environment, attendees at Texas Water 2015 learned about the tools resources used by El Paso Water Utilities, the City of Wichita Falls and the San Jacinto River Authority before, during and after their highly visible and politically charged water projects.
