I’m In the Know About H2O!

The In the Know About H2O program for the 2009-10 school year was a great success. Dalton Utilities provided educational water resource packets to over 2,100 third grade students in Dalton Public, Whitfield County, Christian Heritage and area private schools.

The packets included:

  • interactive educational books with games, puzzles & teachers’ guides
  • rain gauges for classrooms
  • water usage wheels with water facts & conservation tips

I’m In The Know About H2O helped students learn about water as an essential and limited resource and what each of us can do to protect and conserve  it.

Conservation tips the students learned:

  • do not let water run when brushing teeth or washing your face
  • asking parents to fix leaks
  • washing full loads of laundry and dishes
  • water your lawn and plants only once a week
  • turn off sprinklers when it’s raining

As part of the I’m In The Know About H2O program, students submitted artwork that highlighted important water conservation tips.
