April 5, 2012

AUSTIN, Texas – Representative Tracy O. King has joined Texas Commissioner of Agriculture Todd Staples in support of the Texas Water Smart Coalition, which is comprised of businesses, trade associations, cities, water suppliers and elected officials who are committed to promoting water conservation in Texas.

The unprecedented drought and heat have brought many challenges to the people of Texas. The implementation of water use restrictions specifically have severely impacted families and businesses. The widespread hardship has led to the creation of this new partnership focused on meeting Texas’ water needs today and into the future.

“This is a good step towards changing our mind set about water,” said Rep. King.  “By educating ourselves and implementing some simple techniques, we can conserve water and continue exploring better habits for more water tomorrow.”

Texas Water Smart is a comprehensive consumer education initiative with goals to employ television, radio and print ads, social media and other targeted awareness tools to show Texans easy and practical ways to conserve. The Water Smart message is unique because it promotes easy techniques that are proven to be effective in conserving water while maintaining landscaping.
