PSL kids are Water Saver Super Heroes

Thursday 20 April

This city is overflowing with Water Saver Super Heroes thanks to Port St. Lucie Utility Systems! Throughout April, in recognition of Water Conservation Month, Project Coordinator Jenny Tomes is visiting classrooms to recruit our young people to be part of the “Water Force.” She discusses the importance of saving water and the many ways kids can help conserve.

Kindergarten students at Morningside Elementary understand that although 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, less than 1 percent can actually be used by people. So they donned their own Water Saver Super Hero masks to show this community their dedication to protecting our water resources.

These Water Savers are letting our citizens know that turning the faucet off while brushing your teeth could save as much as 8 gallons of water a day! And toilets need water to flush, so they’re also stopping people from wasting a flush on things that can be thrown away instead. Lastly, our heroes are leaping into the shower instead of the tub. A 5 to 10-minute shower uses considerably less water than filling up the tub for a bath.

Armed with this knowledge, our Water Force is setting a great example by making these water saving changes part of their daily routine and encouraging others to do the same. If you’d like Jenny to speak to your class or group about water conservation, contact her by sending an email to jtomes@cityofpsl.com.
