ALBUQUERQUE – The Duke of Waste-A-Lot and Yvette the Toilette will be just two of the new additions to this year’s Children’s Water Festival, the Water Authority’s annual education event for Albuquerque fourth graders.
The event, scheduled for Oct. 20 and 21 at the Albuquerque Convention Center, will also feature 24 different hands-on water activities. These include a brand new “Pollution Detective” activity and “Go With the Flow,” an introduction to hydrological engineering. Whether it’s learning about “indicator species” or how to turn river water into drinking water, an important outcome for the event is that students and teachers learn what they can personally do to conserve water and keep source water clean.
