Local San Marcos students find Vallecitos a water education destination
Learning the sources of our water, the water cycle, movement of water and conservation are part of the state-established curriculum and providing a tour* allows school children an opportunity to receive presentations covering these topics. Furthermore, students can tour the District’s Sustainable Demonstration Garden and can visit:
- Systems Collections Department to see a sewer maintenance truck demonstration; or
- Water Operations Department to see how water is delivered to their home; or
- Construction Department to see how heavy equipment is used to repair or install water and sewer infrastructure.
*Due to high demand, school tours of the Vallecitos Water District are now limited to 5th graders to align with the Next Generation Science Standards, and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Vallecitos Water District also can provide a learning opportunity inside or outside of the classroom and tailor presentations to any age group or organization. Interest in our programs continues to grow. If you are interested in participating, please contact Alicia Yerman at (760) 744-0460 Ext. 223 or by email.
