What topic would you like Brazos River Authority leadership to discuss during a Brown Bag on the Brazos?
The BRA began hosting these virtual open public meetings in April 2021 as a way share insights on recent BRA projects and answer some of the public's questions. The meeting space creates a reoccurring opportunity to keep the public informed, whether as a customer, Texan, or anyone interested in water.
Each Brown Bag on the Brazos is held a few days following a Board of Directors meetings, which allows David Collinsworth, the General Manager/CEO of the BRA, the chance to share meeting highlights during the public forum.
BRA management has joined the meetings to share topics such as Brazos River water supply updates to projects specific to a reservoir and ended with an opportunity for the public to ask questions.
Now the BRA is putting a call out for topics.
If there is a subject you’d like to hear discussed more in-depth during a Brown Bag on the Brazos, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Topics suggestions could range from what lakeside homeowners need to know to live adjacent to a water supply reservoir, or how does a wastewater treatment plant work, or what invasive species live in the basin, or what projects are on the horizon, or how do you calculate evaporation rates, or why can’t you throw leaves in the lake?
Or maybe you just want to better understand the BRA.
The BRA works to develop water resources, including surface and groundwater, including supporting the development of economically feasible alternative water sources and development of infrastructure for the conveyance of water from areas of surplus to areas of need. The BRA also manages water resources as a service to BRA customers and to support beneficial use by those in the Brazos River basin. Among other goals, the BRA works to protect water resources, and where possible, improve water quality and habitat, to support responsible and efficient use of the Brazos River basin’s natural resources.
Send us your thoughts so we can better educate those interested.
