Dr. Hagelthorn provided environmental consulting services to the Bexar Metropolitan Water District, San Antonio, Texas and authored a "white paper" on consumer attitudes towards water conservation issues. Due to recent reorganization and refinancing, Bexar Met had the obligation to implement a water conservation education program for the community. San Antonio is the largest city in the world that relies solely on one source of water to meet its needs. Dr. Hagelthorn took the unique approach to develop hands on education programs for high school science classes. Students were given the opportunity to see first hand how water is pumped from the aquifer, treated, transported and metered to the customer. Dr. Hagelthorn also coordinated and moderated a highly successful teleconference on safe drinking water produced by American Water Works Association and sponsored by the Bexar Metropolitan Water District in cooperation with the University of Texas.
