TO:   Our Pasco Extension Friends:
SUBJECT:  Survey regarding interest in having cistern workshops

The Florida Friendly Landscaping Program and Tampa Bay Water are working together to create a workshop about cisterns.  These workshops would be hosted by Florida Friendly Landscaping/Florida Yards & Neighborhoods personnel at Extension offices or other county venues.

Below is a link to a quick and easy survey that will help us determine which Florida counties have the highest levels of interest and knowledge of cistern systems.  These counties might prove the logical starting point for launching these workshops.

Also consider forwarding this link to anyone you think might be interested learning about cistern systems by attending workshops.

The nine questions should take no more than five minutes to complete.  The information would be priceless to us.
