Inspiring the Next Generation of Environmental Stewards

DC Water is BOOKED for Earth Month events in the month of April. Please contact us for your May 2018 activities and Summer Camps!

At DC Water, we offer top notch educational programs for K-8 students across the District. These programs can help your students learn about the complex issues in the water industry, how they affect our environment and what they can do to help. Our goal is that by providing these programs to District students, we can inspire them to seek out a career in the water sector and be better stewards of the environment, protecting our waterways for future generations.

Your students can take advantage of our employees’ first-hand experience in the water industry. We offer a multitude of programs that cover topics such as:

  • Water Conservation
  • Drinking Water
  • Water Pollution
  • Wastewater Treatment

See our environmental education program offerings here. Presentations can be customized for a particular grade level, or schedule; activities and materials are provided free of charge. Most lessons are appropriate for one class of up to 25 students per session. To schedule a program, please email education@dcwater.com or contact (202) 787-2200. Free guided tours of our wastewater treatment facility are also available for student groups over the age of 11.

Environmental Education at Events

DC Water can provide a rolling water conservation display for large community events. DC Water plumbing experts will demonstrate ways to conserve water in your home using the kitchen sink, shower, and toilet. The display is available for large events with at least 100+ attendees expected. It must be located and moved along a hard surface, such as concrete or inside flooring, and cannot be used on grass. The display also requires electricity and access to a source of water.

 

If you are interested in reserving the rolling water conservation display for your large community event, please contact education@dcwater.com or call 202-787-2200 for more information. Requests must be made at least one month before the event, and should include the date/location of the event, event duration, loading dock information and information about the audience (projected number of attendees, age demographic, etc.).
