Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed: Clean Your Water

Resources for Schools

Water is THE issue of the 21st Century. The best way to ensure we sustain this most precious resource is to educate the leaders of tomorrow in the issue today.

Learning about environmental sustainability is important for students and staff. Help make your school water-friendly by managing rain water.

What is stormwater? Simply put, it is the precipitation that runs off the land and fills our streets, sewers, and waterways during heavy rains. When not managed well, this rainwater runoff can cause flooding and can carry  pollutants directly into our creeks, lakes, rivers, and streams. We all play a role in water quality. 

Stormwater is a fundamental part of the water cycle. Peruse the resource lists below for a variety of materials to help you learn and teach about water-related topics.
