12.07.2011 Running Dry Recap

Interesting ideas came out of the Running Dry discussion. Our students were engaged and were critical of everything that was discussed. Some cited local news articles and what was heard on KPCC on local water issues and the region.

A large discussion was on the scenario if we change local water policies to reduce waste, encourage deeper roots (deep watering) and reducing root rot (allowing drying out before re-watering). By doing this, we may have reduced the amount of damage from the recent wind storms.
