TETRABLAST TAPING TEXAS – OCTOBER 06: The T-Rex water tank is seen in a picture taken on October 6, 2018, in Texas.
Texas, which has been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, is now facing a drought that could threaten the state’s ability to recover from the storm.
The state, which is among the hardest hit by hurricanes in the nation, has a shortage of water for drinking, cooking and sanitation, and has struggled to replace water-damaged infrastructure.
A drought that has hit Texas the hardest since Harvey hit in October is threatening the state to run out of water as early as next year, according to a report by the state Department of Agriculture.
Texas is also facing a shortage for a long-lasting water source: titanium water bottles.
As CBS News reported in October, a shortage is threatening to force Texas to stop using the metal-tipped titanium water containers, which are widely used in the state for drinking water.
The problem is that Texas only produces enough titanium for about a million taps.
The shortage is especially severe in Texas, where the state has only enough water for about 3 million taps and is only able to fill those taps with water from reservoirs and aquifers.
To alleviate the shortage, Texas is currently testing out different ways to make water more efficient.
“We’re going to be testing out a new way to make the water even more efficient,” State Rep. Scott Perry, R-Houston, told CBS News.
A few months ago, a state judge ruled that Texas should get to keep the water bottles it used for years, but now the state is in the process of approving a new regulation to get those bottles back.
“If it’s not going to change by the end of this year, we’ll have to do something else,” Perry said.
“That’s why we’re trying to get these water bottles back, so that we don’t go back to the way that we were before we had this drought.”
A new rule requires tap water distributors to test their water for contaminants in the water before it’s sent out to customers.
It also requires water distributors not to use water from the state-run reservoirs, which also have a problem, because those reservoirs don’t provide enough water.
Some distributors are using the bottled water to fill taps that aren’t working, which can be a serious issue for many consumers.
The bottled water shortage is particularly severe in the Houston area, where about 20% of the population has been affected by the drought, according the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The drought has caused widespread water rationing in the city, and the city is expected to run short of water next week.
“Water is a fundamental right for all Texans,” Perry told CBS, “and it’s important that we make sure we have enough water to meet the needs of all Texans, but we also need to protect our precious water supply.”
In Houston, Perry said that the city’s water needs are the worst in the country.
“The city is in a state of emergency, but it’s a state that we have to be prepared for,” he said.
