Water for the City: Southern California’s Urban Water Cycle

Designed for grades 4-8, this free interactive program focuses on key Southern California water resource issues.  Students will become acquainted with the interrelated systems that form the urban water cycle: drinking water, stormwater, and wastewater systems. Through games, videos, and other interactive elements, the program challenges teachers and students alike to value and care for water resources in our semi-arid climate.
