These four exercises emphasize personal participation and creation of a program intended to minimize one's contribution to the pollution of local watersheds. In the first exercise, students are encouraged to take charge of their environment through an adopt-a-street program. The second exercise is a problem that uses math interpretation to lead students to think about a more water-conservative strategy ... Full description.

This activity illustrates how water is stored in an aquifer, how groundwater can become contaminated, and how this contamination ends up in the drinking water well. They will also realize that many communities obtain their drinking water from underground sources called aquifers and that water suppliers or utility officials drill wells through soil and rock into aquifers to supply the public with drinking ...

This demonstration is designed to demonstrate the procedures that municipal water plants use to purify water for drinking. Students will discover that water treatment plants typically clean water by taking it through the processes of aeration, coagulation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection. They also learn that water in lakes, rivers, and swamps often contains impurities that make it look ... Full description.
