Precious Water
Candice Rupprecht, Water Conservation Specialist, Tucson Water and James MacAdam, Superintendent, Tucson Water It is my firm belief that any consciously living person residing in the Arizona southwest must have some concerns, or at least questions, about the reality of our water situation in the not-too-distant future. It is also my firm belief that the team of bright, caring, committee people addressing the Southwest’s water reality are up to the challenge. Join me to learn about their efforts including what kinds of conservation programs are they offering; where does the funding come from and what does the future of conservation look like in Tucson, Arizona? Get ready for some good, solid, reliable answers from two people helping to lead the water conservation charge. The show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Water.
