Protecting Our Future: The Effects of Climate Change and Drought on Texas – Free Seminar Sept. 25
Despite the recent rains, Texas is still in a severe drought. Municipalities, counties, planning organizations, and regional water districts are increasingly directing their focus on planning and developing strategies for long-term water resources.
In response to this continuing crisis, Freese and Nichols, in collaboration with the City of Dallas, is pleased to host an engaging and informative seminar on the drought, climate change and its implications for Texas, and water supply strategies. This seminar will provide a productive discussion of the current water situation and tangible tools to utilize in long-term water planning.
The featured speakers for this program will include:
- Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon, Texas State Climatologist
- Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, and recently named by TIME magazine as one of its 100 most influential people
- Tom Gooch, P.E., Vice President of Freese and Nichols and Manager of the firm’s water resource planning group
The seminar will take place on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending, please contact your client representative, or Stephanie Buckingham (Stephanie.Buckingham@freese.com, 817-735-7580).
