Ask Me Anything

“Ask Me Anything” is an open session with a member of our Staff, Board Member or other water-related specialists that’s meant to be a casual and easy way to share or ask questions openly. Questions can be as simple as how to use our website, how to apply for a Rainwater Harvesting grant, or something more specific about your well or where your water comes from – we’re here for it!  Like us on Facebook or join our email list for schedule and more information.

Next Session: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 – Doug Box – Answer your questions about the website, Aquifer Conservancy Program (ACP), the District Summit, and all things outreach and education.
