Virtual Speaker Series – Using Rain & Stormwater as a Water Supply
May 19, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Jessica Thrasher will be discussing how rain and stormwater can be utilized as a water supply.
Climate change, increases in population, and recurrent droughts are causing decreases in the total amount of a water available here in Colorado. One of the big ways that we can decrease the amount of water we are using is through reducing the amount of treated water (drinking water) that is being used to water our landscapes. By looking to alternative sources of water like rain and stormwater, we can keep our landscapes vibrant while conserving water. Learn more about how to conserve water at your home by utilizing rainwater! This is a FREE, Virtual event; $5 donation suggested.
