Austin Water Seeks Community Feedback for Aquifer Storage and Recovery Project

Join Austin Water at an upcoming virtual or in-person community workshop to discuss Austin’s Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) project. ASR is a water supply strategy to store available water in an aquifer for later recovery and use. 
As work continues to determine the most favorable areas for an ASR project, the project team is seeking community feedback on evaluation criteria and how the project will incorporate equity and affordability considerations. At the workshops, staff will share information about Austin’s ASR project, collect community feedback and answer questions.
