Long-Term Water Management Strategies




A conference sponsored by the nonprofit Clean Water Fund, DFW: Thirsting for Our Water Future, will take place September 17 at the Richardson Civic Center to provide a foundation for understanding the current state of our water supplies and addressing the challenges we face in maintaining water resources such as drought, invasive species and more. The event will also highlight cutting-edge technologies for meeting water needs and offer practical solutions that homeowners can adopt to save water and money.

This unique opportunity to learn from experts and water professionals about water quality, water conservation and how we can secure our future water supply is aimed at those interested in water issues and how it affects our daily lives: members of the public interested in water and conservation issues; elected officials, policymakers and government agency representatives; nonprofit organizations and staff; and college and graduate students interested in water and environmental issues.

The conference offers a wide variety of water- related topics through open general sessions and breakout discussions that conference participants can choose to attend, including The State of Our Texas Water Supplies; Climate Change and Water; Our Water Future; Pharmaceuticals in Our Water; Invasive Species; the Water/Energy Nexus; A New Technology to Secure Water: Aquifer Storage and Recovery; Saving Water Inside and Out; Landscaping to Save Water; Drought Resistant and Native Plants for North Texas; and Rainwater Harvesting.

Together with clean water action, Clean Water Fund supports the goal of fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for everyone.

Registration is $50. Location: 411 W. Arapaho Rd., Richardson. For more information, visit DFWWaterConference.org.
