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.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019
5:00 p.m. Tour of Watershed Management Group’s Living Lab
6:00 p.m. Discussion on the Drought Contingency Plan and what it will mean to Tucson.
Watershed Management Group, 1137 N Dodge Blvd, Tucson, AZ

Starting at 5 pm, we will have a tour of the rainwater harvesting, greywater harvesting, and water conservation features at the Living Lab. We’ll also be showing the Arizona Public Media film “Beyond the Mirage” for those who don’t want to participate in the tour.

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.

Limited handicapped parking is available next to the Welcome Center, just off of Dodge Blvd. DO NOT PARK IN THE IZUMI PARKING LOT WEST OF THE LLLC – YOU WILL BE TICKETED. There is ample parking on the south side of Speedway Blvd, just behind the Bashful Bandit, and a pedestrian signal to cross at Dodge.”
