Water Conservation Education

Education is considered an essential element of any water conservation program. Greeley is steadfast in the belief that face to face personal contact is the most effective element of its educational program; our staff strives to meet with as many citizens as possible and be visible in the community.

2012 is the year of water in Colorado! Greeley Water and Sewer has joined a statewide effort to celebrate water. Learn more about it at www.water2012.org.

  • The Greeley Water and Sewer Department provides speakers for classrooms, civic clubs and other groups by request. These presentations can be tailored to a specific time, age group, state standard, interest or concern. Please call 970-350-9204 or e-mail water@greeleygov.com with your request.

  • Each year, Greeley Water Conservation co-sponsors a Children's Water Festival for 4th grade students.

  • Caring For Our Watersheds™ is an educational program that weaves together the combined strengths of industry, environmental organizations and communities to engage high school students in preserving and improving their local watersheds.

We provide information and resources to help students with their projects.
