Education

Education and outreach is an opportunity for us to bring awareness to the many ways we all can help keep our environment thriving. Children can lead the way when they understand how their actions can impact and influence those around them. 

Through presentations, educational videos and materials, and our participation in community events, we demonstrate how the water and wastewater treatment processes work, and the importance of protecting and maintaining our systems.

DIY Water Filtration System

A homemade water filtration system demonstrates the process in which dirty water moves through various layers that remove particles and make the water run clear.

This is a very simple and visual way to show how water is absorbed by the earth and filtered before it reenters the aquifer.
