In the Know About H20
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR IN THE KNOW ABOUT H2O PROGRAM!
What is In the Know About H20? Dalton Utilities specifically designed In the Know About H20 to educate area 3rd and 4th graders on the importance of water – how it is a limited resource and what each of us can do to protect and conserve water. Simple water conservation tips are emphasized, like: not letting water run when brushing teeth or washing your face; asking parents to fix leaks; washing full loads of laundry and dishes; watering your lawn and plants only once a week; and turning off sprinklers when it’s raining.

Dalton Utilities provides 3rd grade teachers in Dalton Public Schools and 4th grade teachers in Whitfield County Schools, with a resource packet on water conservation. The packets contain interactive educational books with games, puzzles, rain gauges for the classrooms, water-usage fact wheels, water facts, and conservation tips.
Our goal for this program is to promote simple conservation habits that are easy to incorporate into everyday life. We believe that through this program, children will be able to encourage their families and friends to conserve.
As part of the In The Know About H2O program, students from Dalton Public Schools (3rd Grade) and from Whitfield County Schools (4th grade) submit artwork that highlight the importance of water conservation. The artwork submissions are then judge locally. The awarded artwork is published onto Dalton Utilities’ website; is televised on OptiLink Channel 6; is displayed on local digital billboards, and featured in The Daily Citizen News.
