Harvesting Water, a workshop on how to capture rainwater and use gray water, is being held Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Metro Water District office.

Information is presented by the Water Conservation Alliance of Southern Arizona. RSVP is required, with seating limited to 40 people. The fee is $5. RSVPs are accepted at 575-8100.

Harvesting Water shows people how to use two valuable sources, rainfall and household "gray" water. People can learn how to magnify Southern Arizona's small rainfall "into a large supply for your landscape or garden," a release said.

As for graywater, "rather than sending it down the drain, you will find out how graywater can be put to use in your yard to save you water and money."

Metro Water is offering $50 rebates to its customers who install rain harvesting or gray water systems, or who install high-efficiency toilets. Applications are available at Metro's office at La Cañada and Orange Grove, or online at http://www.metrowater.com">www.metrowater.com.

Call 575-8100 for more information.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
