Brackish Groundwater Bibliography for Texas

Project Summary:

Detailed information on brackish groundwater resources is lacking and presents a potential roadblock to the development of desalination in the state. The goal of the bibliography project is to develop a comprehensive list of literature references for all the major and minor aquifers in Texas. Once compiled, the list will be entered into a digital database so that the information can be easily searched when work on an aquifer is initiated.
