How do the day-to-day choices we make impact the water in our communities? Join IslandWood and King County to explore our local water systems!
Working together as a family, you will use the engineering design process to explore the impacts that humans have on our wastewater system and design your own solution for cleaning water. Learn more about how you interact with the water cycle, how Brightwater cleans the dirty water we produce, and how we can create positive change for our local water supply.
Things to know:
