During Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Lubbock County’s Horticultural Extension Agent Vikram Baliga talked about the upcoming Water Conservation Exposition.

“This water conservation, it’s a big topic… We do have water, for now,” Vikram said. However, he added, “even though we have some available water right now, we don’t know what this drought is going to do. We don’t know what it’s going to look like in the next 5, 10, 15 years.”

Because of the uncertainty of West Texas’ future water supply, it is important to take preemptive steps in order to guarantee a future water supply. The upcoming Water Conservation Expo is aimed at educating anyone interested in ways to save water, especially in regard to watering lawns and landscapes.

They will discuss various aspects of water conservation at the expo, such as how to assess the amount of water your yard really needs and how to measure how much water your sprinklers are putting out.

The expo will be at the Lubbock Indoor Courts in Wolfforth on August 16th from 9:00AM to 6:00PM. Admission is two cans of food for the South Plains Food Bank.

The expo is sponsored by Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, High Plains Underground Water Conservation District, LHUCA, the Science Spectrum, Lubbock Master Gardeners Association, ABC Bank, Citi Bank, Tornado Gallery, and Home Depot.
