Education

In California, water awareness permeates every aspect of our lives. In partnership with Las Virgenes Unified School District, we weave engaging, interactive water studies into the school curriculum, with programs, books, materials and teacher training provided free of charge. In addition, LVMWD sponsors tours and other programs to help educate our customers about our drinking water and wastewater systems.
