ASR for Texas! 2021 Goes Online. Two Half Days. Mornings Only.
Two-half-days of informative presentations and panel discussions on a proven, drought-resilient water management technology.
May 4 - 5, 2021
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM (CT)



Is Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) on your water supply radar?

 


This innovative water management technology is changing the water storage and supply paradigm in Texas. ASR allows for water to be stored underground in times of plenty—then retrieved for beneficial use in times of drought. Expanding the use of underground storage will help meet the water demands of Texas’ growing population, especially in the face of drought and climate change.
