Water 101 – Presentation Planned

Special to the Courier

The final “Third Thursday” lecture of 2016 at the Johnson City Public Library will feature Water 101¸ a presentation by Charlie Flatten, Water Policy Manager for the Hill Country Alliance. The lecture will take place 6 pm on Tuesday, Dec. 13, at Johnson City Public Library, 501 Nugent Ave. Johnson City, 78636. Third Thursday is free and open to the public.
Water, essential for life, is our most precious and valuable natural resource in Central Texas. But water supply is limited and under increasing pressure from a growing population. How will we protect this resource and plan for a sustainable future? There is a great need for a water-literate public; decisions being made today have far reaching and long lasting effects for our children and future generations.
Water 101 is a Hill Country Alliance presentation that will answer questions about how much water we use and on what, where we get our water, how we manage our limited water resources, and how we must balance varying demands on our water supply.
Join us as we explore water science, law, management, and the future of water resources in the Hill Country from a conservation based perspective.
