CWAG answers your water questions

Will we run out of water and if so, when? Will my well go dry? Is my water safe to drink? Will the Big Chino pipeline save us? Will it harm the Verde River? What can we do to help?

A panel of experts from the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) will answer these questions and more on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation building, 882 Sunset in Prescott (two blocks behind True Value).

In the first part of the presentation, CWAG Science Committee Chair Peter Kroopnick, Ph.D. will sum up our most current water issues and CWAG Public Policy Committee Chair Gary Beverly, Ph.D. will discuss potential solutions. CWAG President Chris Hoy will moderate the second half of the program devoted to answering questions from the audience. Bring your questions to the meeting or submit them in advance to
