KUT Radio Interview: Austin Water seeking long term Solutions

The city of Austin is revisiting water restrictions that may go into effect next year. As the drought continues, water levels in Lakes Travis and Buchanan drop ever lower. That could mean cutting back on water usage in Austin and elsewhere. In this week’s Austin Business Journal, Cody Lyon reports that the city is working with businesses on a possible rewrite of those rules. He tells KUT’s Matt Largey that no one took into account what would happen, if stringent water restrictions are needed for a prolonged period of time.
