Fort Worth: Water providers collaborate on campaign
The Tarrant Regional Water District, Dallas Water Utilities and the North Texas Municipal Water District have joined together for the Water is Awesome public outreach campaign. For the first time, all North Texans are hearing a unified message this summer to “Keep Texas Water on Tap.”
The population of the North Texas region has increased by 1 million since 2010 and it is expected to almost double over the next 50 years. Water conservation and learning how to reduce water waste is the least expensive long-term water supply strategy for future generations.
A significant investment has been made in water supply and infrastructure. Without water, life in North Texas would be very different. Taking a shower, brushing teeth, washing dishes and clothes, growing backyard vegetables, jumping in the pool and maintaining lawns are just a few things we would miss without an adequate water supply. Knowing the value water provides and using water efficiently are essential.
“Water is a finite resource,” said Dustan Compton, conservation manager for Tarrant Regional Water District. “And learning how to use water more efficiently will help ensure we have a strong water supply in the future. We believe water is awesome. We want people to use and enjoy water. We just ask everyone to be mindful of that use and to never waste it.”
