What is your top environmental concern and how would you address it?

Vincent Harding

City Council, District 1

Concerns regarding adequate water supply, water quality, water costs, and prevention of water flooding are very important environmental concerns. Implementing the final version of the Water Forward plan will be essential for the next Council Member. Including Green Stormwater Infrastructure, keeping more storm water onsite, and considering porous pavement and green roofs are things that can positively impact water. I support bond dollars for flood risk reduction, drainage improvements, and acquiring water quality protection lands. Lower “lifeline” water costs for Austin customers is important.
