City and State leaders met at Shared Spaces in Midland on Thursday to discuss the area's ongoing water problems.

In a press conference, leaders challenged residents to step up their daily water conservation efforts. 

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples Midland Mayor Jerry Morales and other leaders all today part in the event.

The leaders emphasize we are still in a now five-year long drought.

"The State Climatologist says that 90 percent of Texas, even with the recent rains, is in some form of drought status." said Staples.

State climatologists report this current drought is among the worst in 500 years. 

According to the state water plan, nearly 25 percent of our future water needs will come from conservation.
