  7. Is the presentation duration fixed or flexible?

    If desired, our one hour presentation can be modified to accommodate students' interest and school schedules.

  8. Does your water education presentation deal with water safety?

    We do not address water safety issues such as swimming and life saving, but rather focus on various aspects of our tap water and wastewater in relation to the natural environment. (Water safety information can be found through St. John's Ambulance).

  9. Are there any allergy or health concerns to students stemming from this presentation?

    There are no chemicals or hazardous materials used during our presentation. Water and vegetable oil may be used in one demonstration.

  10. Will we get wet?

    No.

  11. Will your presentation address rural concerns?

    The Region of Peel's water systems consist of the south Peel system, which has its source in Lake Ontario, and the Caledon municipal well system, which has its source in groundwater. Additionally, there are numerous private wells and septic systems. We can speak to all three of these water systems to bring local relevance to your classroom program.
