A geoscience team from Southwest Research Institute recently completed a study on the long-term effects of groundwater pumping near Devils River, one of the state’s last pristine rivers. They found that the river relies heavily on natural springs from the Trinity-Edwards Aquifer in Southwest Texas. The headwaters moved 10 miles downstream since the 1960s.
