Blandford Elementary students learn water conservation in Rowland Heights

From Rowland Unified

The sixth grade at Blandford Elementary is experimenting with water conservation today in Rowland Heights. The students joined The LivingWise Program sponsored by Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas to learn the importance of natural resources and how to reduce their usage.

This program includes reading material and experiments.  In today’s exercise, the sixth graders will experiment with the  school’s sprinkler system.  They want to find out if the sprinklers are wasting water when the school waters the fields and grassy areas.

After students collect the data, they hope to have the opportunity to present this information to our district, so changes can be made.
