I got a chance to visit the Tarrant Reginal Water District, and unlike the last visit I got a chance to see their control room, while Laura discussed their coverage area.

Since I wasn’t busy taking pictures on this tour I heard some really interesting facts about their new facility:

  • Waste Water is being recycled through a 200 acre wet land treatment system
  • 1.47 Million Solar array (powers 50-70% of the buildings usage)
  •               Repaid in 16-18 years
  •               Since the water district is a govt. building it was important for them to look into long term improvements with little environmental impacts
  • The control room is comprised of several monitors, constantly monitoring the counties lakes and public water usage
  • Since water is becoming scares and expensive to move around the water district is working on ways of reducing costs to its community.

I appreciated that the Water District had created several indicatives to encourage it’s employees to practice sustainable working habits, that support environmental improvements.
