Sound off on aquifer storage

Monday, October 10, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

As the city’s water utility moves forward with the aquifer storage and recovery project, it is turning to the public for help with a series of in-person and virtual workshops. The meetings are designed to answer questions and gather input on how the project will incorporate equity and affordability concerns. Aquifer storage and recovery, or ASR, is a way to store and retrieve water in aquifers for use when needed. The project is in its first phase of implementation, with a team working on identifying suitable storage sites. The public feedback sessions, which all contain the same information, are open to Travis, Bastrop and Lee county residents.
