REMINDER: Green Bag Lunch-n-Learn - Saving Our Water: 2013 Drought Response


Presentation by Julia Gallucci

The City’s next Green Bag Lunch-n-Learn to take place on Wednesday, July 17 will cover the climate and hydrological conditions which have led to both historic and the current water shortages and what our community is doing about it. We will touch upon hot topics such as rainwater use, and other political and personal choices that affect supply. We also will discuss best water saving practices for individuals and the rebates and incentives available to Colorado Springs Utilities water customers.

Julia Gallucci is the drought project manager for Colorado Springs Utilities. In this capacity she's responsible for supporting the comprehensive implementation of the drought response plan. She also manages the water education program with a goal of improving the value perceptions around water in our community through youth and adult education, community collaboration and partnerships.

The Lunch-n-Learn will run over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102 on the first floor. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from reused City banners. 

Each month, the City sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on an environmental issue. Questions? Contact Ellery Miller at 719-385-5286 or
