In a recent informal survey performed by the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, Texans who were subscribed to the organization’s email list were asked to provide opinions regarding current water issues. This survey was sent to a sample of 1,050 people who had previously been active in Texas water issues or who had asked to be kept informed on the subject of water in Texas. Of those surveyed, 579 participants replied, which gives the survey a response rate of 55.14%. This survey was not designed to be representative of the entire state, but rather was intended to raise awareness regarding the general opinions and beliefs held by those who have identified themselves as concerned about water issues to the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment. Additionally, the data gathered from this survey will provide insight into potential future survey study designs.
