Blue Legacy nominees sought
AUSTIN -- Presiding Chairman C.E. Williams of the Texas Water Conservation Advisory Council announced the launch of the Save Texas Water Blue Legacy Award in Agriculture.
Though it often goes unrecognized, the agriculture industry is actively conserving and efficiently using water through everyday decisions, investments, and practices. This award program is a way to showcase agricultural producers as effective caretakers of water resources. Through the Blue Legacy Awards, the council honors these groups whose practices enhance conservation of water.
Any individual, group, agency, association, council, or organization may nominate an individual producer, family operation, or partnership farm and/or ranch operation. Individuals, families, or operations may also nominate themselves. Winners will be invited to attend the 2011 Texas Irrigation Expo Dec. 9-10 in McAllen for acceptance of the award. The deadline to submit nomination applications is Wednesday, Nov. 2.
