Inspiring the Next Generation of Environmental Stewards
At DC Water, we offer STEM programming for K-12 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. Students will also be exposed to exciting careers in the water and wastewater industries. Our goal is that by providing these programs to District students, we can inspire them to seek out work 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
