During the 2010-11 school year, students at schools throughout Marin will be learning all about water through a fun, interactive water assembly, presented by ZunZun and sponsored by MMWD. ZunZun is an award-winning performing arts group specializing in environmental education. Bilingual (Spanish-English) assemblies are available. After the water assembly, each student will be given a postcard with instructions for testing shower flow rates at home. Students who complete the work and submit their results to MMWD will be given Niagara Earth Massage showerheads with 2.0 gallon-per-minute flow rates to replace high-flow showerheads. These high-quality showerheads feature an on/off switch, adjustable 9-jet turbo massage, consistent flow rate regardless of water pressure, and a non-removable flow compensator.
In the future, MMWD plans to introduce similar programs for students to reduce shower length and to inspect toilets for leaks. For additional information about MMWD’s Water Education Programs for students, please visit our website or contact MMWD at (415) 945-1458 or email@example.com.
