Out & About with NTMWD Public Education & Outreach in May

Cox Elementary – Wylie, Texas

Water 4 Otter Tour Across North Texas!

Water4Otter is a water conservation campaign for kids launched by the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) in 2014. It is based on the insight that most parents agree they would listen if their kids asked them to conserve water. The live, 45-minute Water4Otter in-school presentation increases students’ knowledge of Lavon Lake as their water source, water treatment and reuse, wastewater treatment, watershed, and stormwater protection. This year the tour included stops at Elementary schools in Wylie, Garland, Mesquite, Plano, Princeton, Richardson, and Royse City with a total of 22 performances!
