With the hot summer months rapidly approaching, Keep Coppell Beautiful is hosting a short program that will address a variety of water conservation techniques.

The public is invited to attend a free event called Water University at 10 a.m. on May 26 at Coppell Town Center, which will cover topics, such as watersheds, storm water runoff, and design-and-maintenance water conservation techniques for lawns.

In addition, the program will address how rain water can be used beneficially to irrigate landscapes, gardens and house plants.

The "visiting professor" at Water University will be Carry Dubberley, who is the founder of Dubberley Landscape Inc. Having been in business since 1996, Dubberley's company helps create environmentally-sound landscapes.

"(Dubberley) is enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge of horticulture defined as the art and science of growing plants and how they relate to the larger environment," according to the City of Coppell's website.

Anyone who is interested in attending can simply show up on the day of the event, and registration is not necessary.

Keep Coppell Beautiful, which is sponsoring Water University, works to promote environmental issues, including waste reduction and litter prevention, to businesses and individuals in the city.
