Read about awards, efficiencies and progress throughout the District in our July News Stream. This month we feature, the Trinity River Main Stem Pump Station and Pipeline project recognition as the American Public Works Texas Chapter Project of the Year for 2020, a Buffalo Creek Lift Station project that will provide a savings of $80M over its life, and the progress made on the raw and treated water pipelines for Bois d’Arc Lake.
We’ve also got ways you can get smarter on lawn watering this summer with a new app from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service when you sign up for alerts at WaterMyYard.org. You can find resources to share to keep Texas water on tap, pledge to take care of Texas and defend our drains by knowing how to protect our pipes.
Plus online events, news links and more.
