The forum will be held on Tuesday, August 19, from 7 to 9 pm at the Damascus Township Community Center

The second forum in our continuing renewable energy series will focus on the topic of water conservation. Water is our most important natural resource and on Tuesday, August 19th, from 7 to 9 pm, a group of people will gather at the Damascus Township Community Center to discuss a variety of ideas about caring for one of nature’s most precious gifts to us.

Brian Smith, dairy farmer and Wayne County Commissioner, will speak about an innovative solar-powered watering system for cattle that some local farmers are finding to be a cost-effective and eco-friendly approach to caring for their animals.

Rick Brinkman, of Alternative Energy Supply in Hamlin, will speak about a range of home applications to conserve water including graywater systems and rain collection.

The community center is at 60 CONKILL HILL ROAD, (off 371, near the Cochector Delaware River Bridge) DAMASCUS, PA 18415.
