Water Squad Investigations

Grade 4-12

Water Squad Adventures Activity Book

Launched in September 2006, Water Squad Investigations is a collaborative environmental education program that joins Central Basin, the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts and LA County’s Whittier Narrows Center to provide students with a fun-filled day of water awareness.

On early Friday mornings throughout the school year, participating students are driven from their school to the San Jose Creek Water Reclamation Plant (SJCWRP), and later, to the Whittier Narrows Nature Center in a charter bus provided by the District. At these sites, students are introduced to the concepts of water recycling and conservation through multimedia presentations, fun activity book exercises and guided tours of the facilities.

By the day’s end, students gain a solid understanding of how water recycling can help conserve valuable drinking water and about the simple but effective ways they can conserve at home.
