The water flows, through rocks & holes, Deep in the Karst of Texas.
Once our karst groundwater welled up through geological faults in plentiful springs, which were the watering holes of early outposts and cities. Today, some have disappeared, and many are barely gurgling under twin threats of climate change and over-pumping to serve an ever-growing population.
Learn more about the porous limestone hydrogeology that creates these springs.
