A Citrus Situation: Texas is not getting water owed from Mexico

Western water resources are seemingly always scarce. Allocation talks for major U.S. reservoirs have been the center of discussion, and now, Mexico is coming into the mix.

NewsNation reports that the South Texas citrus industry is not getting the water it is owed from our southern neighbor.

Under international treaty, Mexico must deliver 1.75 million acre-feet of water over a five-year period.
So far, they have only paid up about 382,000. The deadline is next October.

Due to water shortage, Texas’s only sugar mill closed last month.
