Sustainable Tucson meeting on “Dealing with Drought” at Watershed Management Group’s office

Sustainable Tucson Monthly Meeting: Jan. 8, 2019

Dealing with Drought

“Arizona could experience the impact of a Tier 1 water shortage by 2020 if the water level in Lake Mead continues to drop. What can we do to avoid this situation…or at least mitigate the impact if it does happen?
Join Sustainable Tucson for our monthly meeting to talk about water issues, water conservation, and the Drought Contingency Plan at a special location: the Watershed Management Group Living Lab and Learning Center.

At 6 pm the main program will begin, with local experts discussing the Drought Contingency Plan, what it will mean for Tucson, and what we all can do to prepare for the upcoming shortages.

Light snacks and rainwater will be available.
