Hi Omar! I'm so happy you're a part of the network. We can use more folks who really enjoy getting in front of others to speak. We currently don't have anyone on the site speaking to water issues, I see you're a part of KPOW. If you feel the desire to begin a workgroup for water and find more folks on Transition willing to take up a water workgroup, that may advance the efforts as well. Otherwise, next month on August 18th we're having an Intro to Transition Milwaukee meeting at the Urban Ecology Center beginning at 6:30. It will be a good intro for new folks. We hope to see you there, and looking forward to meeting you in person.

Jessica
