What is a Watershed?

Explore the watershed concept and how topography influences the movement of water across the landscape. Through a hands-on Enviroscape activity, students will discuss water movement across land, identify local non-point pollution sources impacting waterways within the watershed and brainstorm some conservation measures that could be taken to protect the environment.

Clean Water Lab

Students will explore the water treatment process as they attempt to purify a sample of polluted river water. Students will employ the engineering design process as they experiment with different chemicals, materials, and techniques to purify their water sample. This activity also helps students better understand the resources that go into treating our water and the importance of water conservation.

Model Water Tower Competition

The Model Water Tower Competition is a yearly competition hosted by Cobb County Water System and Marietta Water Authority. It is an interdisciplinary undertaking and requires students to design and build functioning towers with limiting specifications. The competition is designed to provide information to youth about water resource engineering, infrastructure, water treatment, and water conservation in hopes that some will become future water professionals. The contest is for middle schools, and it allows students to learn about the water profession through a fun-filled, hands-on science project. Last year’s grand prize winners won $300, $200, and $100. For information please email us at [email protected] or call 770-419-6431.
