In the Classroom


The Water Division provides educational services to schools in the Fresno water service area that includes classroom presentations (currently only grades K-6),   and information related to water issues at school and environmental events.

The Education Coordinator organizes the requests from schools and participates in educational community outreach with other government agencies, environmental groups, service clubs, neighborhood associations, etc.

The Education Coordinator participates in community events throughout the year and supports activities at after school programs. 
Call: 621-5480.

To better serve the students and teachers in our community, the Water Conservation Program provides school site classroom presentations. Examples of the grade level appropriate presentations are listed below.


Grades K-3
Presentations are 20-25 minutes in length and begin with thinking about where our water comes from and an introduction to the water cycle. A short video (@ 7 min.) shows how people waste water and is followed by student generated ideas on how each could have been prevented. Presentations are interactive requiring the students to think and respond. Depending on the availability each student receives an official Water Conservation sticker, coloring book, Story of Water comic book and plastic ruler. Each teacher receives a copy of the All About Water: K-3 Activities book.

Grades 4-6
Grades 4-6 presentations are basically the same as the K-3. Students may receive brochures on water-saving tips rather than the coloring books. Custom designed presentations are also available at these grade levels that will fit in with the teachers' science curriculum or area of emphasis.


All private and public schools with a Fresno mailing address, including, but not limited to: Fresno, Clovis, Central, and Sanger Unified School District schools.
