We are excited to announce the Texas Living Waters Project’s Water Conservation Scorecard has been recognized as a 2017 Blue Legacy Awards winner in the Innovative Projects category. The Water Conservation Scorecard, released May 2016, is the result of a statewide analysis of more than 300 public water utilities to find whether Texas’ water suppliers are making their best efforts to reduce per capita water use.
The annual Blue Legacy Awards, administered by the Water Conservation Advisory Council, celebrate “innovators who champion the preservation of the state’s most precious resource, water.” The 2017 award winners have been named in categories including agricultural, municipal, river authority or regional water district, and innovative projects.
The Texas Living Waters Project, along with the other award-winners, will be honored Wednesday, March 22 during Texas Water Day at the Texas State Capitol, beginning at 1 pm. For more information about Texas Water Day, visit the Texas Water Foundation website.
The Texas Water Conservation Scorecard was also recently recognized in the March 2017 edition of the Journal of the American Water Works Association, a nationally-renowned publication that features thought leadership from water industry professionals.
