“As a compound, nothing could be simpler than water: two atoms of hydrogen joined to one of oxygen. From a human point of view, simplicity fades.” (National Geographic, April 2010).
Water is one of our most precious - and limited - natural resources, and the world community is becoming increasingly aware of its use and need for conservation.
Blanco’s water problems may be just a drop in the bucket compared with those of the rest of the world, but the Blanco Woman’s Club seeks to raise awareness of the subject.
How can we as citizens best conserve that precious resource?
What is the future of Blanco’s water availability?
These questions, and others, will be discussed at an upcoming event to be held at the Blanco Library.
In keeping with the tradition of sponsoring a special community activity each year, the Blanco Woman’s Club has chosen to host a two hour discussion with the theme of “Blanco: Water of the New Decade and Beyond.”
In the upcoming event, representatives form the Lower Colorado River Authority and the Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater District will present information regarding Blanco’s water supply and growing needs. Additionally, a member of the Master Gardener’s will discuss rainwater collection. The first hour will be devoted to these presentations. During the second hour, light refreshments will be served and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers with our speakers.
This discussion will be held at the Blanco Library on Thursday evening, April 29, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
The public is warmly invited by the Blanco Woman’s Club to attend and participate with your questions and observations.
