Water Education Programs
We offer a variety of field trips, classroom programs, and assembly experiences to help your students learn about water and their community’s water supply. All programs are provided at no cost to schools located within our service area. In addition, we reimburse bus costs up to a maximum of $300 per field trip to the Los Vaqueros Watershed or a treatment plant.
Check out our Education Brochure (PDF) for more information.
Please review our FAQs and the Important Points below to determine which program or field trip will best suit your needs.
To request a field trip or classroom program, please coordinate with your fellow grade-level teachers to choose one contact person to represent the classes at your grade level at your school. Your contact person can then use the application entry forms to request field trips or programs for all of the classes he/she is representing. Once the “submit” button is clicked, the form will be delivered to us, and a confirmation will be sent after it’s reviewed. Please allow a few days for review.
- The process and registration forms are set up to manage one contact person representing each grade level at each school. For example, if your school has five 4th grade classes, select one 4th grade teacher to be the main point of contact for all five classes.
- Los Vaqueros Watershed Field Trips and Water Treatment Plant tours are scheduled by lottery, due to the popularity of the programs.
- Classroom Programs and Assemblies are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Due to changes in the law, CCWD is changing the structure of its Water Education Program, resulting in delays in the notification of lottery results as well as scheduling for the Los Vaqueros Watershed Field Trips and Water Treatment Plant tours. Delays may occur through the end of 2018. Thank you for your patience!
