Treated Sewage and Hill Country Streams: Balancing Population Growth and Healthy Rivers

Thursday November 8th 2018 in Kerrville 

Moderator: Anne Rogers Harrison — Water Quality Program Leader, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

Panelists:
Nathan Pence – Executive Manager of Environmental Science and Community Affairs, Guadalupe Blanco River Authority
Sky Lewey — Resource Protection and Education Director, Nueces River Authority
Chris Herrington PE — Interim Environmental Officer, City of Austin Watershed Protection

Across the Hill Country, we are seeing a proliferation of permit applications to discharge treated wastewater directly into Hill Country creeks and rivers. Population increases are putting pressure on utilities to expand services, and many do not have the technical or financial resources to explore alternatives.

Join Schreiner University, Texas Public Radio, and the Hill Country Alliance for an exploration of how can we accommodate the coming population pressures while protecting our iconic crystal clear rivers and streams? What tools can we use to harness treated effluent’s rich nutrient loads to benefit our landscape without spoiling our waterways?
