Program Targets Smart Watering
article by Beth Kuhles
A new program aims to help residents of The Woodlands
save water and money. As part of a continuing effort
to encourage water conservation in the community,
The Woodlands Joint Powers Agency recently introduced
a program that provides free assessments of irrigation
systems for residents.
Called The Woodlands Irrigation System Evaluation
program (W.I.S.E. Guys), the agency that oversees
water use in the community will send out a licensed
professional to find problems that waste water in
residential sprinkler systems.
Flea Market on April 17th
The annual spring Flea market will be held
on Saturday, April 17th, at 7AM in the
