Water Conservation

Let Water Prosper

The Town of Prosper aspires to educate our residents on the importance of preserving water. Less than 1% of the earth’s fresh water is available for us to use, so we have an obligation to preserve our water for the future. Occasionally, we offer courses that range from rainwater harvesting and making rain barrels to teaching water conservation techniques.

Upcoming Courses:

Water Efficient Irrigation
Tuesday, August 22, 2017
6 pm – 8 pm
Water Tower Gardens
401 S. Craig Street
Prosper, TX 75078

Attendance is free; however, registration is required! We hope to see you there!

Tour our award winning Earth-Kind Gardens. Contact Tristan Cisco for additional details.
