Just minutes ago I got an urgent email from TRIP infoming me of a meeting on Wednesday where I am expected to give a speech and sing the National Anthem. I can not guarantee I will do what is expected of me. I seldom do.
Below is the TRIP message....
Dear Friends of the Trinity River,
Worried About Water In Tarrant County? Maybe You Should Be.
Over the past ten years, North Texas has seen record population growth while our water supply levels have consistently fallen. There seems to be no real plan to solve the problem and as we're beginning to see the dry lake bottoms baking in the sun, it can only get worse. But this is nothing compared to what we're facing. Where is the money that can be used to solve this problem - and where should it be going? John Basham will tell you.
Also - What is TMDL and what's the status of our TMDL? TMDL is the Total Maximum Daily Load. Sounds like just another government alphabet soup acronym, but it actually refers to the levels of PCBs in the Trinity River. PCB or Polychlorinated biphenyls, are highly toxic and carcinogenic chemical compounds that river tubers, wake-boarders and others enjoying a dip in the Trinity have been exposed to. The North Central Texas council of Governments is involved in a study of the maximum allowable levels of PCBs in the Trinity. Since they hold their "public" meetings during business hours (when most people are at work), we attended for you and will give you the lowdown. Of course, you can ask US tough questions! Because we like asking tough questions ourselves.
Get updates on the increased costs of the Trinity River Vision and how it will impact you.
Then, take a look at some alternative plans.
We'll have many guest speakers - -You won't want to miss this one!
