CEES to Co-Host Water Reuse Forums
Water reuse in Oklahoma is the topic for three upcoming educational outreach forums open to the public at no cost. Meetings are designed to inform the public and allow people to provide input for Oklahoma’s future water resource planning. Wastewater recycling, reclamation and reuse may be an option for many communities to augment their drinking water supplies, especially in areas where fresh water resources are limited.
The forums are sponsored by the Oklahoma Water Survey together with faculty at the University of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, Oklahoma Dept. of Environmental Quality, the City of Norman and Garver Engineering.
Three sessions have been scheduled for 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. on:
Thursday, April 23
Thursday, May 14
Thursday, June 18
The location for all three meetings will be the National Weather Center, 100 David L. Boren Blvd., Room 1313, Norman, Oklahoma. Click here for a full copy of the agenda.
While the forums are free and open to the public, sponsors are requesting that participants register at http://oklahomawatersurvey.org/
