Drinking Water and Water Conservation (Grades K-6)

Curious about where your drinking water comes from? In-class programs offer discussions and activities focused on the importance of protecting our local drinking water, how and where we use water and ways we can conserve this precious resource.

Grade 5 classes have the opportunity to participate in the Get to Know Your H2O tours and get a first-hand look at how water gets from the source to tap. The tour explores Sooke Lake reservoir, the surrounding forest and the water disinfection process that ensures the water delivered to your tap is clean and safe to drink.
