Water: Non-Partisan but totally political

Thursday, April 19th, 11:30 am-1 pm
Hideaway Kitchen at Ramada South Austin
4323 South I-35, Austin, TX 78744

Join us for lunch and learn about responsible water management policies in Central Texas that affect the three "E's" of sustainability: economy, environment, and equity. 

Learning Objectives:

  • How is water managed?
  • What role do weather extremes play in water planning?
  • The economic impact of the Highland Lakes
  • What’s next in water management

Jo Karr Tedder is President of Central Texas Water Coalition, an organization she and a small group of advocates founded in 2011. The group grew from her experience on LCRA’s Water Management Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee in 2010, when it came to light that Highland Lakes businesses and residents were not at the table in water-use planning.

Jo Karr is a recognized authority on water issues and regularly speaks on behalf of the need for changes to how water is managed and valued. She is a native Texan, a former educator and education administrator, and a political consultant. After living and working on the East Coast, she returned to Texas and has resided on Lake Buchanan since 2001.

CTWC’s mission is to advocate for the Highland Lakes’ role as an irreplaceable natural resource that drives an important regional economic engine for the State of Texas and to bring together concerned citizens as a constituency. Partners of the coalition include lake residents, business owners, municipal officials, home owner associations, environmentalists and stakeholder organizations.
