Resource Links


Thanks to a young student who found great information on our site for her report and in return she suggested a new informational link to include on our Resource Link page called Water Conservation Throughout the Home.  We want to thank her teacher for sending us a very encouraging email with the information.  Protecting Water in the home is very important, so we hope that this new link will help us to become more aware and mindful about the our usage of water in our home.  Thank you Julia for sending us this link and for being a protector of water! Have a great summer.

(Teacher’s email sent to BHCWA)
I just wanted to reach out and say thank you… one of the students in my summer tutoring group was working on a water project and she ended up on your web page (this one https://bhcleanwateralliance.org/resource-links/) She thought you would like to know that we found excellent info for her project, so she says thank you:) Also- Julia and I thought we could return the favor by sharing another educational water resource we found… “Water Conservation Throughout the Home”

It has tips for saving water all through the home with great information for kids, too, and she thought it would be a helpful addition to the informational links on the page she found! I hope you can add it-Julia’s passionate about the environment so I think she’d be proud to see that her contribution was helpful.
