CEI - Pennichuck Water Works Outreach Program

April 24th, 2018


 

CEI provides comprehensive watershed management services throughout New England. As part of this ongoing initiative, CEI supports and participates in Pennichuck Water Works 5th grade outreach program. CEI and Pennichuck staff visit 5th grade classrooms in the City of Nashua and Town of Amherst School Districts to give an interactive presentation to the students. Utilizing demonstration, activity and open discussion, the program aims to encourage students to think about the water they drink and where it comes from. Students are given the opportunity to learn about the water cycle, surface and groundwater movement within the watershed, and watershed protection complete with a working groundwater/watershed model. Now in its 5th year, this popular city-wide program has grown to include 11 City of Nashua public elementary schools and the Town of Amherst Middle School. In 2018, this program will reach nearly 50 fifth-grade classrooms and close to 1,000 students.
