Citrus Heights Water District partners with schools within its service area to educate children about the importance of water conservation and how they can help conserve water.
CHWD offers one-hour interactive classroom presentations to demonstrate to students how they can conserve water every day. The classroom presentations are tailored for grades K-3, 4-6 and 7-8.
The presentation for grades K-3 includes watching a video and learning about the water cycle.
The presentation for grades 4-6 includes watching a video, learning about the water cycle, how water is treated before it reaches our homes, where our water comes from, and water conservation. This presentation also includes an exciting experiment on how dirty water is cleaned.
The junior high presentation (grades 7-8) focuses on a groundwater model that shows how water flows through the ground and the different layers of rock, granite and sand it must travel through. During the presentation, colored dye is injected into the groundwater model to simulate water percolation, and how it travels and spreads through our groundwater supply.
CHWD also conducts an annual poster contest for students in grades 4-6. For more information, please visit the Poster Contest page.
