Video+Story: Saturday’s Water Festival Showcases the Role of Water in our Lives

El Paso Water is hosting the 18th annual Water Festival, a free event featuring interactive educational activities that are fun for all but especially geared to school-aged children.

The celebration coincides with Drinking Water Week, an observance sponsored each year by the American Water Works Association for communities to recognize the essential role that drinking water plays in our daily lives.

The Festival will promote awareness and protection of our water resources in the Chihuahuan Desert, and visitors will gain a new appreciation for water quality, conservation and stormwater management.

Thanks to several partnering organizations and various water experts, 42 booths will be available for visitors to engage with experiments, interactive displays and competitive games.

Water harvesting demonstrations, presentations about native bees, and Rio Grande flow displays are just a few of the planned exhibits.

WHAT: TecH2O Water Festival

WHEN: Saturday, May 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

WHERE: TecH2O Learning Center at 10751 Montana Ave.

For more information call (915) 621-2000.
