Watch our puppet show
We have presentations for all grade levels: pre-K through high school. Call our education specialist, Sharon Sivinski at (505) 768-3245 to schedule a presentation. We also offer tours of our Water Reclamation facility for students in fourth grade and up. Students have the opportunity to see up close how we treat water from the sewer system to make it clean and discharge it into the river. It’s an amazing process.
