30 people enjoyed Saturday’s trip to the El Paso Weather Forecast Office. Lance Tripoli shared a variety of weather data, equipment (including a weather balloon) and weather facts. He also forwarded two great slide presentations to Celebration of Our Mountains with a shout out to Mr. Jason Laney and other meteorologists here for making these slides:
Last Saturday’s Celebration of Our Mountains/El Paso Water was attended by engineering students, master naturalists, homeschoolers and others. We have already toured the Robertson Water Treatment Plant to see how Rio Grande water is treated for our use. Tomorrow EPWater will conduct a drilling tour. As we all know, two sources of our El Paso water are the Mesilla Bolson and the Hueco Bolson. Tomorrow’s tour (not far from the Rio Bosque Wetlands) will demonstrate drilling into the Hueco Bolson.
