New York Celebrates Water Week
Water Week is a time to think about how fortunate we are for the state's abundant water resources and how we can all help protect, restore and conserve it. Water Week is May 5 - 11 in 2013, and the theme this year is, "The Power of Water". The Division of Water will celebrate Water Week by sending a "Special Edition" message to its MakingWaves listserve highlighting a different water-related topic each day.
The Water Week topics this year are:
- Flood preparation and response
- The wide variety of water uses
- Water quality and quantity regulations
- Water stewardship
If you are not already receiving MakingWaves, we encourage you to subscribe. In addition to the Water Week Special Edition messages, you can expect to receive an email from this listserve once a week informing you about new and important water-related issues, events, and releases.
MakingWaves is one of over a hundred topics offered by the DEC for email updates. To subscribe to MakingWaves and any of the other topics that interest you, go to DEC's homepage.
