Would your group like to learn more about your water system, its colorful history, where the water comes from and how we treat it, the latest in conservation efforts and what we are doing to ensure future supplies?
Request a speaker on the water topic your organization is interested in and we’ll send an expert to your group’s meeting — free of charge.
The Denver area is in the second year of a serious drought that’s not getting better.
Denver Water’s reservoirs didn’t fill last year, and the mountain streamflows that feed our reservoirs are expected to be well below normal. Based on the conditions we are seeing today, this may shape up to be Denver’s worst drought on record.
Request a half-hour presentation and Denver Water will send a representative to your group — free of charge. You will learn about Denver Water, current drought conditions and how we can all do our part to save water.
This isn’t Use Only What You Need. This is drought. This is Use Even Less.
Our role in the water cycle (Grades 3–5)
This presentation includes activities such as: The Incredible Journey, where students role-play a water molecule’s journey through the water cycle; and, The Water Cycle on the Front Range, an interactive simulation of our water’s journey from source to tap. By better understanding Denver Water’s role in providing safe, reliable drinking water — and student’s own roles in using this resource wisely — students will develop a deeper and practical understanding of water.
How do we treat our water? (Grade 6)
Earth does a good job of naturally treating its water; but steps still need to be taken before water is safe for human consumption. This presentation will walk students through the five steps of the treatment process.
Visualizing Earth’s water (Grade 6)
This fun activity will help your student organization see where and how water exists on Earth. Students will be active participants in this presentation and will walk away with an understanding of the limited amount of fresh water available on Earth.
Who gets it? (Grade 6)
You drink eight glasses of water a day, right? Did you know that the water in your glass is barely a drop in the bucket of how much water is used every day? From making hamburgers to manufacturing blue jeans; water is in everything we touch and consume. This presentation will introduce students to the many fascinating ways water is used — in ways they may have never imagined.
Denver Water — The five W’s (Grades 9–12)
Who are the people that keep your water flowing from the forests to your faucets? With more than 1,100 employees, Denver Water has exciting careers in engineering, project management, information technology, human resources, water and environmental law, planning, communications, etc. Depending on your class focus, we will also bring various activities like: The Incredible Journey, an interactive simulation of the water treatment process, an art and writing competition through the River of Words, or an introduction to our three-day intensive H2O Outdoors water camp at Keystone Science School.
