News Stream – July 2019

Our July News Stream includes a recap of a decade’s worth of coordination with state, local and federal agencies to regain access to a major source of water supply for the North Texas region while safeguarding our waterways from Zebra Mussels.

You can also learn about a new recycling awareness initiative from the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) Resource Conservation Council. “Know What to Throw” is geared toward increasing recycling participation and decreasing contamination by educating citizens which items are recyclable and which are not.

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 your WFAA Green Segment replay, Member City and Customer event listings, recent news and more.
