In celebration of Water Conservation Month in April, the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) invites schools within the District's
to learn about water conservation. This includes all of Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor, and Union and parts of Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson, Levy, and Putnam.
For their efforts, we would like to recognize participating schools on the District's website and send a news release about their projects to the local newspapers. The schools' water conservation efforts will also be recognized at our Governing Board meeting on May 16.
Water conservation project and/or lesson plan ideas may be generated using material on our main
Water Conservation page
or from another resource. Some ideas that might be considered are:
Create a poster using water conservation tips;
Write an essay about how to conserve water; or
Access the water use calculator to estimate their home water use and make a pledge to conserve during the month of April.
In addition, the following links provide water conservation lesson plans.

Lessons or projects could be done as a class or by individual students and could easily serve as an addition to a science lesson or a science or FFA club project. The District will accept projects from grades K-12.
Please send project descriptions and/or photos of your projects by Friday, April 19 to Vanessa Fultz at
. For more information, please call 386.647.3150.
