    The rapid growth of Monterrey is a big factor, but Texas has failed to get in front of the problem and inform the public.

    Experts working near international water reservoirs on the border say that the severe drought currently happening throughout the American West and Northern Mexico may soon have dire effects across South Texas as well.

    Martin Castro, the Watershed Science Director at the Rio Grande International Study Center (RGISC) in Laredo, said they are seeing alarming reports in water levels.

    “Falcon is dropping drastically from week to week,” said Castro. “I mean, a week ago it dropped a foot.”

    The International Water and Boundary Commission (IWBC) is currently reporting water levels at just 23% capacity at Amistad Reservoir north west of Del Rio, with water levels at only 11.5% at Falcon International Reservoir south of Zapata.

    The numbers represent a severely depleted capacity for the two reservoirs that supply virtually all communities downstream with running water along the border.

    When asked if it is possible that Zapata County and the Rio Grande Valley could run out of water in the next few weeks, Castro responded, “It doesn't look like things are improving so it's a real possibility. I can certainly see that happening. But a lot of the public is not aware of this. There's a lot of lack of communication to the public about conserving water.”

    Texas leading from behind, as usual, but the US has apparently been sitting on its hands too.

    No need, that's what we have you for, only, you serve them as an appetizer, a first plate and a main dish.

    In 2020 Abbott begged Trump for help to get the water owed and got nothing.
