Water policy is never a dry topic. An expert made a drop in at Texas Tech to discuss water policy and environmental issues.

Daniel Craig McCool Professor of Political Science at the University of Utah talked about the Katrina Syndrome, which he said are natural disasters that are the result of human-made disasters.

He linked The Katrina Syndrome to the Ogallala Aquifer. McCool said Texas is facing a severe water crisis. He said H2O users need to start making some wise decisions.

"The day is very clear on this," he said. "The Ogallala is being mined for ground water. It is going to get worse. So it has to change. If we start managing water as a precious resource, there will be enough."

McCool is an author of nine books. His latest is called 'Rivers of America.'
