Sixth Annual Water Palooza Teaches the Value of Water

The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) Students and Young Professionals Committee (SYPC) is taking WEF’s mission statement to heart. To continue increasing the awareness of the impact and value of water, SYPC will host the sixth annual Water Palooza event immediately before WEFTEC 2018 in New Orleans.

On Sept. 28, water-conscious organizations and companies will gather at New Orleans’ Joseph A. Craig Charter School to illustrate the value of water through hands-on activities. During the event, students separated into small groups will visit various stations to learn about local water quality and the environment, the value of water resources, initiatives in the local community, and actions to take to save water and protect ecosystems at home. The school is located next to the Treme Community Center, which is the site of the 2018 WEF Service Project.

WEF volunteers are helping organize and host the event to educate the next generation of water stewards. Those interested in volunteering or hosting their own free, educational booth, should contact Carol Kinzer at ckinzer@trihydro.com.
