1 day per week Watering Schedule Input Mtgs

Austin Water is pleased to kick off a public input process to consider a proposal for a permanent one-day-per-week watering schedule. We also want input on other parts of the conservation code to help develop the best overall package of conservation strategies. The first of several meetings will be held on December 2, 2015. Citizens will have an opportunity to engage in small group discussions that will help craft the regulations that support the proposed watering schedule.

Please join us to share your ideas and recommendations.

Wednesday, December 2, 2015
Waller Creek Center
625 E. 10th Street, Room 104
6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Additional meetings will be held in January and residents will also be able to provide feedback online. We will send updates as they become available.
