This is the first in a series of five lectures in CWAG's "Water 101" class offered in Spring 2015. The presentation analyzes Prescott's water usage and conservation program, discusses conservation policy in general, then estimates the potential savings that could be achieved. Beverly describes CWAG's latest water conservation efforts and encourages citizens to get involved. Gary Beverly, Ph.D., is a retired businessman who now works to protect the Verde River. He lives in Chino Valley.
