DALLAS — The Texas Water Resources Institute, or TWRI, will host a Texas watershed coordinator roundtable Aug. 6 in Dallas for water and natural resource professionals.

The free event will be from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 17360 Coit Road.

The training is part of TWRI’s Texas Watershed Planning Program, designed for individuals interested in or responsible for watershed protection and restoration.

Nathan Glavy, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist for TWRI, College Station, said the roundtable will include updates by representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board and Texas A&M Forest Service. There also will be presentations on watershed protection planning, implementation and outreach.

“These roundtables provide a forum for watershed coordinators where they can develop interactive solutions to common watershed issues throughout the state and receive program updates on a variety of issues,” Glavy said.

Attendees may bring lunch, or a catered lunch is available for $10. An RSVP and registration is required at bit.ly/2KJIWxW.
