As the population of The Woodlands and South Montgomery County continues to grow at a rapid pace, officials in The Woodlands are looking to the future to ensure there is adequate, and affordable, access to drinking water for residents.

On Wednesday, township leaders received a lengthy, detailed update on water issues as well as subsidence concerns from officials with the San Jacinto River Authority.
