Water Festival 2019
We had another great Water Festival at Sportsplex in Opelika. Our Engineering and Stormwater staff love being a part of this educational day!
Scott Parker, City Engineer, and his staff, taught students about water, conservation of natural resources and how to become better stewards of the environment.
In addition to our Engineering Department, representatives from Opelika, Auburn and Lee County, along with the Alabama Agricultural Extension Office, the Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service and Clean Water Partnership, were on hand to educate and have a little fun with the kids. Interactive booths kept the kids engaged and excited. They learned about aquifers and water cycle. At the end of the day, they experienced a magic show by environmental magician Paul Cash. #myOpelika
Tentative date for the 2020 Water Festival is set for the first week of May!
