The workshop focused on household water issues such as drinking water safety, water conservation, storm water management, and the information available on the Penn State Extension Water Team’s website. Five learning stations were created covering groundwater infiltration, water conservation, community water systems, water testing, and water resources. Penn State Educators developed and shared several educational worksheets and activities that the teachers could take back to their classrooms and implement with their students next year.
