Conversation Corps talks water in January

Thursday, January 7, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

This month, Austin’s Conversation Corps is talking water. Specifically, the group is holding a series of public meetings about whether the city should make the Stage 2 Water Use Restrictions permanent. Those restrictions, which limit watering to one day per week, have been in place since 2011 due to the drought. The Austin Water utility has proposed making them permanent in order to encourage conservation. To gauge public sentiment, Conversation Corps is scheduling meetings around town. All are open to the public. A list of meetings, which will continue to be updated, is available online here.
