WATER WOES – The Corpus Christi Water Supply

Water Woes traces the development of the Corpus Christi, Texas water system from its beginning in 1892, serving a city of 4,000, people to supplying water to over a half million people in 2020. The woes include salt in the water supply, a ruptured dam, a defectively designed second dam, rupturing waterlines, water boils and severe droughts leading to rationing. The woes are capped off by a protracted political battle over the location of a dam, which ended up in the wrong location, at a huge cost overrun that provides little additional water to the city. Water Woes is an excellent reference for the water professional, as well as the history-minded reader.
