APRIL / 2018
'The Wonderful World of Water' Now in Classrooms!
Rowland Water Partnered with Rowland Elementary to bring a creative classroom presentation to third grade.

The Wonderful World of Water is an addition to our educational program and this activity book and story includes a conservation lesson, science lesson, coloring pages, a vocabulary worksheet, a chart to track your water use at home and much more! These activities are aligned with third grade Common Core Standards and bring fun hands-on activities to the classrooms.

For educators interested in brining The Wonderful World of Water to their school, contact Brittnie Van De Car at bvandecar@rowlandwater.com or (562) 697-1726.
Fix a Leak Week
Rowland Water participated in Fix a Leak Week (FALW) March 19-22. This nationwide community conservation effort focuses on fixing leaks indoors and outdoors.

Rowland Water customers were able to come into the office during the week and get a free leak detection giveaway along with our new 'Pocket Guide to Fixing Leaks'. Customers were also given a collapsible water bottle to fill up at our filling station.

RWD also participated in the U.S. Environmental Protection (EPA) Agency’s WaterSense® Twitter relay on March 19th. Cities and Water Districts from across the nation were asked to volunteer and Rowland was apart of the California Twitter relay.

Customers were also given a survey to complete and were entered into a drawing to win one of the following : One (1) 55-gallon rain barrel for their garden,
one (1) drip irrigation retrofit kit, or one (1) smart irrigation controller (4-station) .

Our winners of the drawing were Gabriel Sears and Ana Rodriguez --CONGRATS on your new water efficient items for your landscape!
