Elliott Students Learn Tips for Water Conservation

Nov 14, 2014

Elliott Water PresentationStudents at Frisco ISD’s Elliott Elementary School pledged to be good stewards of our local water supply following a recent presentation by the North Texas Municipal Water District.

Third, fourth and fifth graders learned that cities such as McKinney, Frisco and Plano get their water from Lake Lavon, which sits at less than half of its design capacity due to years of drought.

Students also met Otis the Otter, one of the animals that call Lake Lavon home, who urged them to “save water for otter.”

Three students got the opportunity to go on stage to pinpoint areas of their home where water can be saved, including the kitchen, bathroom and lawn.

They were encouraged to follow and share tips for conservation including only running the dishwasher when it is full, taking a shower instead of a bath, turning off the faucet when brushing their teeth and encouraging their parents to turn off the outdoor sprinklers between Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day.

The presentation, dubbed “SaveWater4Otter—Water IQ,” is free for area schools.
