Water — Liquid Gold!
It's something many of us take for granted -- water. Water is like liquid gold for Texans -- incredibly valuable for life and economics.What are the arguments around water? Who is involved, and more importantly, what can be done to manage this precious resource now and into the future?
CTWC is an organization dedicated to protecting our drinking water and the economic viability of the Highland lakes region. We believe in sound science, straight-talk based on facts, and conservation. We believe in transparency, accountability, and better communication between agencies, academia, and citizens. We believe in grassroots organizing: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has—Margaret Mead
About Our Speaker:
Jo Karr Tedder is President of CTWC, an organization she and a group of advocates founded in 2011 to provide a unified voice for Central Texas. The group grew from her experience on LCRA’s Water Management Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee in 2010, when it came to light that Highland Lakes businesses and residents were not at the table in water-use planning.
Jo Karr is a recognized authority on water issues and regularly speaks on behalf of the need for changes to how water is managed and valued. She is a native Texan, a former educator and education administrator, and a political consultant.
After living and working on the East Coast, she returned to Texas and has resided on Lake Buchanan since 2001.
