Campus Sponsor:
The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment

Water, essential for life, is our most precious and valuable natural resource. But water supply and quality are under increasing pressure from a growing population. How will we protect this resource and plan for a sustainable future? There is a great need for a water-literate public; decisions being made today have far reaching and long lasting effects for our children and future generations.

With the population of central Texas expected to double in the next twenty years, tremendous pressure is being put on the natural resources that we have previously taken for granted. Local communities are beginning to take action to protect local waterways that we rely on for drinking, recreation, ecological services, and economic stability.

Join the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, Texas Public Radio, and the Hill Country Alliance as we gather perspectives on the challenges and benefits of Watershed Protection Programs in Texas and abroad. Doors open at 6:30 pm. 

Moderator: Dr. Andrew Sansom - Executive Director and Professor of Practice, The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment

Panelists:

  • Mike Bira – Texas Nonpoint Source Program Manager, US-EPA Region 6
  • Chris Herrington - Water Resource Evaluation Section Manager, City of Austin Watershed Protection Department
  • Brian Koch - Regional Watershed Coordinator, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board
  • Meredith Miller – Watershed Services Program Coordinator, The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment
  • Kerry Niemann – Section Manager, Water Quality Planning Division, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
  • Dianne Wassenich – Program Director, San Marcos River Foundation

Given that this effort is crucial, our Diving Program depends on the help of its AquaCorps, a team of trained volunteer divers that realize the goals of conserving the springs for future generations. By successfully completing the Spring Lake Dive Authorization course (DAC), qualified Open Water SCUBA divers can become members of our AquaCorps and assist us in managing and monitoring the lake, while at the same time enjoying dives in crystal clear water with constant temperature in one of the best freshwater dive sites in the state.

More and more divers are recognizing a desire to give back to the underwater world that has given them so much. Join us by using your skills as a SCUBA diver to help protect and preserve one of the true treasures of Texas: Spring Lake.

  • Students will meet for one full day at Spring Lake where the assessment quizzes will be reviewed, diving skills will be assessed, a tour of the springs will be given and common volunteer tasks will be demonstrated.

  • This course is PASS/FAIL. Students must score at least 70% on each of the assessment quizzes and demonstrate that they are competent divers (good buoyancy control and situational awareness) in order to pass.

Campus Sponsor:
The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment

As the steward of Spring Lake, The Meadows Center is responsible for the management of this unique body of water and its natural and cultural resources. Given that this effort is crucial, our Diving Program depends on the help of its AquaCorps, a team of trained volunteer divers that realize the goals of conserving the springs for future generations. By successfully completing the Spring Lake Dive Authorization course (DAC), qualified Open Water SCUBA divers can become members of our AquaCorps and assist us in managing and monitoring the lake, while at the same time enjoying dives in crystal clear water with constant temperature in one of the best freshwater dive sites in the state.

More and more divers are recognizing a desire to give back to the underwater world that has given them so much. Join us by using your skills as a SCUBA diver to help protect and preserve one of the true treasures of Texas: Spring Lake.

Requirements:

  • Show proof of a Full Open Water SCUBA Certification through a major Dive Training Agency (at this time Junior Open Water/Advanced Certifications are not being accepted);
  • Show proof of a minimum of 20 logged dives beyond their training dives;
  • Students must provide all of their own equipment, including tanks and weights.
  • Pay the Course fee of $230 per student*,**
  • Students must complete and turn in all required paperwork.
