The district will partner with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Research to offer a workshop exploring the topic of rainwater harvesting. Charles Hillyer, Ph. D., Assistant Professor, Extension Specialist – Irrigation Engineer, will present the workshop that is scheduled for 9 am – 12 pm on Saturday, October 28 at North Plains Groundwater Conservation District at 603 East 1st St. Rainwater harvesting systems can be as simple as a rain chain positioned over a planter box, or as complex as multiple integrated catchment areas and storage facilities with treatment systems to produce a potable drinking water supply. Hillyer will give an overview of the principles of rainwater harvesting to inform the mildly interested and provide a head start to anyone wanting to plan their own system.
