Winning the Water War hosted by the DeKalb Green Commission on Sat. Sept 19th.

HOLD Saturday, September 19 for Winning the Water War while Having Fun and Saving Money! The Green Commission is hosting our first of four sustainability workshops on Saturday September 19, 2009 at the Maloof Auditorium, 1300 Commerce, starting at 9:30 am.

Come early for coffee, stroll through the exhibits and register for door prizes. Workshops will focus on water conservation and include:

Water Smart Landscaping; Rain Harvesting; FOG (fat, oil, grease) – Do you know what is going down your drain and how much it is costing you? Septic Tanks – There are many in DeKalb, learn how to keep them working.

DeKalb County residents stepped up during the drought by cutting their water consumption. The continuing legal battles and recent ruling against Atlanta’ s (including DeKalb) use of Lake Lanier for drinking water put water conservation back on top of the list of things we can do to help. While the federal & state legislatures and governors continue to wrangle with difficult compromises YOU can have fun learning about what we can do and how you can save money in the process!

Exhibitors will display low-flow toilets, rain barrels and retrofit kits for home use. Door prizes and tips on how to conserve water in your daily life will be available.
