Our water, power, and sewer operations are an excellent starting point for project-based learning. To help teachers, schools, and parents foster the next generation of environmental stewards, we partnered with the Center for Ecoliteracy to produce this free K-12 curriculum resource that aligns with the Next Generation of Science Standards.
We love to help inspire students to save water and protect our environment. Our free school field trips will help you teach your students about our city’s water history, their local watersheds, wise water use, and more.
Have you ever thought about how the sewer system works? Or what happens when you flush the toilet? We partnered with the California Academy of Science to produce this fun and educational video to introduce the story of our sewer system to young audiences.
This 60-minute documentary focuses on the creation of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, including the early history and controversy about the plan to bring much-needed drinking water to the Bay Area, and the continuing challenges now facing the region with climate change.
