Water-wise week promotes smart water use

Sunday's rain kicked off a week-long public awareness of promoting water- saving habits.
The city of Scottsbluff, the National Forest Service, and the UNL Panhandle Extension Center have teamed up this week to promote water-saving habits.

Community Forester Amy Seiler says being 'water wise' is very important in the panhandle, because we have such limited precipitation here.

This water-wise week is focused on transforming traditional landscapes to maximize water intake.
Seiler says a water-wise workshop will be held to inform the public on how they can make the most of their landscaping.
"What people will learn at this workshop is things they can actually do. So they may be able to develop a little rain garden just to capture a small amount of water that may come off of their roof. They will learn how to really effectively irrigate their grass, which is so important we waste a lot of water."
The water-wise workshop will be held this Thursday at the Scottsbluff Lied Public Library.
