Water Evaporation Project Approved - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Water Evaporation Project Approved

 Wichita Falls City Council has approved another measure to help Texoma battle the drought.

The WaterSavr evaporation project was approved Tuesday morning.  The city will be spending just over $375,000 on the project. 

The testing trail period will begin on Monday, July 21st.  The city will do over two months of testing.

WaterSavr will supply equipment for the project and they will be hiring two locals to run the testing. 

This product has been used in the United States before.  One of the places that has done this is California and Nevada.  This is the first time a product like this will be used in Texas.

WatterSavr has been approved by state regulators including the TCEQ and by national regulators.  It is proven to be safe and officials said it will have an impact on the environment. 

The product can reduce evaporation by as much as 30-percent.  However, the city would be happy with the minimum of 10-percent.
