EnviroScape Nonpoint Source Pollution Model®

An interactive presentation to demonstrate the relationship between daily land-use practices and water quality. Various "pollutants" (cocoa, powdered drink mixes, soy sauce, etc.) are applied to the landscape with subsequent "rainfall" (spray bottles) creating contaminated runoff and a polluted watershed. It's a fun hands-on presentation which kids love! The overall watershed/stormwater concept is effectively communicated to all ages (children to adults).  Contact Stormwater Enterprise for arrangements at (719) 385-5033.

Colorado Watershed Presentation

Google Earth animated presentation of the local drainage basins of Colorado Springs, the Fountain Creek Watershed, Arkansas River Watershed, Colorado watersheds, and the major watersheds of the United States. Students follow the journey of our local waterways learning about the impacts of stormwater pollution and runoff as they pass through various watersheds in route to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Ditch Playing in Ditches

With the use of videos, photos, and PSAs, students learn about flash flood safety and the Ditch Playing in Ditches campaign. In addition, the program promotes safety from chemicals and other dangers in and around our streams, creeks, and drainage channels.

All three presentations are given together in approximately 1 hour. If your group, school, or organization is interested in a presentation, please contact Stormwater Enterprise for arrangements at (719) 385-5033.
