DALLAS — The results of a three-year study of landscape run-off water at Texas A&M’s Dallas Research and Extension Center will be the focal point of a water quality conference set for July 9 at the North Dallas facility.
Dr. James Reinert, Dallas researcher and director of the project, will conduct tours of micro-landscapes to demonstrate the results of varying water management plans. He will show how city dwellers can prevent polluting run-off water from their home landscapes. Other sessions examine how cities are meeting water quality regulations, using consumer education to reduce urban run-off and preserve water sources.
