From (Erin Feese):

For their efforts to spread the word about water conservation, high school students from Douglas County were recognized by the Colorado General Assembly on April 16. The Water Ambassador program, kicked off this year by the Douglas County Water Resource Authority, is aimed at raising awareness of water issues among citizens in the region, said Mark Shively, DCWRA executive director. The DCWRA is made up of water providers, municipalities and Douglas County government with the mission of conserving water resources.

As Water Ambassadors, high school students teach fourth graders about water conservation and motivate them to embrace water-wise practices at home, which helps inform and engage parents, Shively said.
