This week I’m in Texas—San Antonio—for the Society of American Military Engineers’ Facilities Management Workshop, where our Editorial Advisory Board member, Dr. Eugene Tseng, will speak on the subject from an environmental lawyer’s standpoint. It promises to be interesting, so you have a heads-up on next week’s column. Also, you can bet that I’ll have my ears open to thoughts regarding the US District Court judge’s ruling upholding the injunction against Dallas’s flow-control ordinance. While the ruling deals a serious blow to Dallas’s efforts to enact waste flow control for the moment, I hope this is not the end of the story and that I will have more to report next week.
Likewise, I hope to report that the severe drought that has plagued the region for more than a year has abated and that the highways are no longer filled with trucks carrying the most precious of all fluids to communities whose local water resources have been sucked dry. That’s not too likely, given the image that NASA posted only yesterday, showing the low levels of precipitation in the area.
