TO THE TEACHER...
Learning about storm water – where it flows, how it becomes polluted, and how to prevent storm water pollution – is fundamental to understanding our local water resources.
The District is pleased to offer a variety of educational materials and resources to schools within the Fresno-Clovis metropolitan area. View the District's list of teacher resources. Target audiences are students from 4th to 12th grade. The information provided can assist in meeting California educational standards for:
