Water Conservation Day At The Capitol

On Thursday, May 21st, the Texas Water Foundation hosted Water Conservation Day at the Capitol. The event was held at the Texas State Capitol so that members of the state legislature are exposed to the water conservation programs in our state. As policy makers consider important water conservation legislation knowledge of existing programs is helpful.

Groundwater Conservation Districts, Texas Water Development Board, Water IQ, and others hosted a booth or display that presented the various components of their conservation programs. The water conservation theme was stressed in all of the displays/booths. Many visitors, including senators, house members and their staffs visited the building throughout the day.

Our program was one of the ten groups that participated during this event. We created a summary of our existing programs using pictures of selected activities and a brief explanation of each. The display highlighted the individual water districts within the cooperative and also illustrated the importance of the cooperative program.
