Apr 05, 2017  |   Homeowner  |   Professional Contractor

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - The Water Zone radio show is pleased to announce that Ms. Chris Austin, founder of Maven’s Notebook, will be joining the program as a regular contributor. Maven’s Notebook is the comprehensive source for California water news, information and reporting.

Austin has been writing and sharing information about California’s water issues since 2007. She covers both state and federal agency activities, is close to sources directly engaged in the water debate, provides updates on precipitation, snow pack and reservoir levels, reports on legislative hearings, and delivers information about California Delta research and Waterfix, an initiative to ensure reliable, clean and safe water supply for California businesses, farms and residents.

Austin has developed a reputation for presenting all sides of California’s complex water issues without agenda or bias, giving her access to a variety of sources, meetings and seminars.

“We are excited to have such a well-respected and informed contributor on our show,” said Rob Starr, co-host of The Water Zone. “She’s amazing and I’m delighted that we are able to  add her talent and knowledge to the show.”

“I’m excited to be joining the Rob and Mike on the Water Zone,” said Austin.  “With so many things going on with water in this state, I look forward to keeping Water Zone listeners up-to-date on the latest water news.”
