Our 'Know Your Watershed' series now has a home

Folks, we're pleased to let you know that we've set up a permanent home for our smash-hit (okay, we're excited about it anyway) series Know Your Watershed. We intend this series to be an educational resource for citizens who care about their communities. Understanding how our local natural systems work and where our water goes is the first step in knowing how to take care of the places we love.  

Head on over to the KYW landing page to see what watersheds we've highlighted so far. In the coming weeks and months, we'll keep adding pages for more watersheds in North Texas. We'll also continually add information, articles, photos, and videos to each watershed page. 

The newest feature in our series is the Rowlett Creek watershed—a major contributor of flow to Lake Ray Hubbard, a critical water supply reservoir for the region. It spans ten cities in Dallas and Collin Counties. Here's a sneak peek:
