Environment Matters Lunch & Learn

Environment Matters Lunch & Learn

Columbia County Environmental and Stormwater departments along with Georgia Master Naturalist, Margaret Alligood, will host the next Environment Matters Lunch & Learn Wednesday, April 17th from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM at Columbia County Library, Meeting Room B (7022 Evans Town Center Boulevard, Evans).  
Topic in April:  Water IS Life...Our Local Water From River to Faucet

Water is a fascinating subject.   In the United States whenever we turn on the faucets out comes a flow of precious water.  It is easy for us to take this resource for granted.  If we have to go an hour or a day without access to water all of us quickly realize how valuable this commodity truly is and how much it helps our Community thrive both in personal and business aspects.  

April 17th please join us and meet the Water Utility Team that we are very fortunate to have serve our Community.  The Water Utility Compliance Manager, Margaret Doss will be leading the April session.  You will also meet the Lab Manager, Rodney Silvey and others from the fine-tuned Water Utility Team.  They will go over the intricate steps involved to get the water from the river to your faucet and then back to the river once more.  You will be enlightened on why tap water is better than bottled water, what goes in our water and learn how each of us can take steps in protecting our most valuable natural resource water.   

There will be a few light refreshments and door prizes.  Come join us for an upbeat, casual informative meeting and meet some of the County employees that gladly serve your community.
April will be the third of five planned sessions for 2019.  The sessions will run through June on the third Wednesdays.   Schedules allowing, there may be more scheduled after that time period and if that occurs future notices will be sent out along with any other changes.   

There is no cost to attend.  Classes are for adults.  Please call the library to register 706.863.1946 extension 4 to reserve a seat. Registration is strongly encouraged, however we certainly welcome walk-ins.
