Drinking Water: Protecting the Source

Drinking Water: Protecting the Source on ffa.org

The Drinking Water: Protecting the Source instructional materials were developed to assist teachers who seek to enhance the consciousness of their students about where their drinking water comes from, and how sources of drinking water can be protected. The teaching materials are designed to supplement existing instruction in agriculture, food and natural resources courses. They serve as independent units of instruction on source water and as “hands-on” learning activities to enliven the educational experience for students and teachers.

The instructional materials are related to water characteristics and contaminants, water regulations, drainage, and reducing the flow of nutrients into groundwater and surface water
