Sustainability Re-defined

By March 22, 2022

One of the cool things about the work we do at the water district is planning and building for our future needs. Water supply, flood protection, recreation – that’s what we do. They are all important aspects of our daily lives. And they play a vital role in keeping the economy moving, protecting our homes and businesses, and enriching our lives.

To do our jobs in a sustainable way means meeting the needs of our community now without impacting the ability of future generations to meet those same needs. That’s how we approach the things we do.

The video you are about to watch is part of a series of stories that highlight our efforts to be sustainable. They explain how we are developing new water supplies, building infrastructure that lasts, developing regional partnerships with other water suppliers, and more. All to ensure a bright future for North Texas.

Embracing sustainability with a passion comes naturally to us. Because we’re like you. And we want the best for our kids.
