Water Fest soaks students with knowledge

Teaming up for a day of hands-on learning


On May 19, Denver Water and its suburban distributors teamed up with Metro State University’s One World One Water Center for the second annual Denver Metro Water Festival on the Auraria Campus. Despite the rainy weather, more than 1,200 sixth-grade students from Denver Public Schools and other metro-area schools attended the event.

The festival offered unique lessons and activities to create a greater awareness of the importance of water in our daily lives. Denver Water’s Youth Education team worked with organizers to create a fun, hands-on experience for students to learn about the impact of the environment, industry, population growth, agriculture and more on water in Colorado.
