News Stream – August 2019

The August News Stream features information about our dedication to water conservation efforts as a key source of supply plus more information about a key regional initiative to share a unified message across all of North Texas. We’ve also got exciting news about a new Waterworks training program in coordination with Collin College and state grant funds to address the growing shortage of water and wastewater workers.

We introduce you to our new Watershed Manager, share TCEQ’s “News You Can Use,” highlight education resources at the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center and give you the facts about recent water filtration ads showing up on social media.

In less than a minute to you can see Bois d’Arc Lake June progress in action and get links to sign up for the monthly newsletter plus regular progress report.

And, we’ve got all your WFAA Green Segments on replay, Member City and Customer event listings, recent news and more.
