Home Landscape Series Water Conservation Workshop to be held November 16

A water crisis looms in Texas, driven by population and economic growth, drought, and competition among users for an increasingly scarce supply.  The crisis is affecting Texas residents today and it may take decades for the supply and demand equation to achieve balance.  All Texas residents have a stake in this problem, and there is something everyone can do to conserve an increasingly scarce and yet vital resource.

The Texas Water Resources Institute reports that over 1.8 million acre-feet of water is used every year for watering landscapes in Texas.  (An acre-foot of water is the volume of water needed to cover one acre of land to a depth of one foot.)  Landscapes play an important role in the quality of our homes and communities; but applying 1.8 million acre-feet of water to landscape use every year may be unsustainable.

The public is invited to a workshop that will cover many practical steps that homeowners can take to reduce water use in the landscape and maintain a healthy landscape with plenty of curb appeal.  The Home Landscape Series Water Conservation Workshop will be held in Katy on Saturday, November 16, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm at Katy High School at 6331 Highway Blvd.   Participants will have hands-on learning opportunities involving irrigation system components, including converting to a drip system and understanding the controller, and assistance in assembling their own take-home rainwater collection barrel.  Workshop topics include landscaping to conserve water, irrigation efficiency, managing water supplies, and rainwater harvesting methods.

The workshop is sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, The City of Katy, Keep Katy Beautiful, Katy HS Science Olympiad, and the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners. The registration fee is $25.  More information and a registration form are available at or or by calling Brandy Rader at 281-633-7029.
