Clean water is vital to everyone's health.  That's why we make an extra effort to include and educate our youngest citizens about water quality including stormwater pollution and ways we all can make a difference.  See the links below for our Kids Contest and a printer-friendly kid's activity book.

Since 2015, we have partnered with BendFilm and Central Oregon Daily News / Zolo Media to give kids an opportunity to explore specific water pollution topics and create a 30-second public service advertisement.
