Each month, municipal and water district water conservationists from across the metroplex gather together as part of WENNT – the Water Efficiency Network of North Texas - to share information and meet with water conservation leaders to learn more about how to promote water-efficient, water-conserving principles and practices in their own jurisdictions.
As part of the week-long National Groundwater Awareness Week, Prairielands Groundwater Conservation District and the City of Grand Prairie Water Utilities Department hosted the latest meeting on Friday, March 13.
Attendees heard about groundwater, groundwater conservation districts, the connection between ground and surface water, and statewide water conservation news from speaker Dr. Bob Patterson, general manager, Northern Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. In addition, Jim Siddall, water operations manager, City of Grand Prairie discussed his city’s water-conserving landscaping initiatives and their implementation history as demonstration garden areas at their water facilities.
