Texas’s most serious environmental problem is the establishment of an adequate supply of water. Numerous reservoirs are maintained for water supply, recreation, flood control, and irrigation. Underground water supplies are also widely used for irrigation.
Soil conservation and the protection of Texas’s wildlife are also of major concern. State organizations, notably Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, as well as federal agencies are involved in Texas’s conservation program. Soil conservation projects in the state include the reseeding of grasses and rangelands to control wind and water erosion, the terracing of croplands in hilly areas, and the rotation of crops in areas where the fertility of the soil has been impaired by extensive growing of a single crop.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is the major state agency involved in controlling environmental pollution. "Texas" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
