Zone 7's Schools Program Has Gone Virtual!


Did you know we are still offering lessons on water quality, water conservation, flood protection, and more to our local teachers? We can’t visit your classroom, so we made our presentations and educational activities available at your fingertips. Our lessons are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards for K-12 content, created and taught by certified educators!  You can view lesson plans for each grade level by clicking here.

We're here to help! For additional information, or to request programs or resources, contact the Schools Program Coordinator at 


From water conservation to storm-drain pollution, and from recreation to the important connection between the local watershed and drinking water, there are many valuable lessons awaiting local students -- right in their own homes and backyards.

Zone 7, in cooperation with other local water and wastewater agencies, offers several water-science programs designed to help local teachers meet the California science standards and bring environmental science to life. These programs expand students' groundwater_model.jpgknowledge of water issues in California and include a special focus on the Livermore-Amador Valley to help students here better understand the role of water in their own community.

For additional information, or to request programs or resources, contact the Schools Program Coordinator at There is no cost to you or to your school to take advantage of these programs and resources.
