Water Guzzlers making life a little easier for wildlife

NRCS is making life a little easier for wildlife in drought stricken west Texas by installing passive Water Guzzlers. These structures collect rainwater and send it to a trough that can be easily accessed by deer and other wildlife species. As the drought continues these guzzlers provide the only surface water for miles in many cases.
