News Stream – April 2019 Edition

The April edition of News Stream starts off with a tribute to a long-time friend of the District, Congressman Ralph Hall. We included reminders for the end of our annual water quality maintenance temporary change in disinfectant, how boaters can continue to help stop the spread of zebra mussels and numerous programs offered through the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center for educators, students and families.

We introduced you to the new full-time technician with the Collin County Soil & Water Conservation District, Ryann Cline, showed you a sneak peak at the Texas A&M AgriLife Dallas Benny J. Simpson Ecopark, and congratulated our own Robert McCarthy who will be retiring after 15 years of service to NTMWD.

As always, we’ve got your WFAA Green Segment recap, Member City and Customer event listings, recent news and more. Read the full News Stream on line or download a pdf version at the link below.
