Environmental Education at Events

DC Water can provide a rolling water conservation display for large community events. DC Water plumbing experts will demonstrate ways to conserve water in your home using the kitchen sink, shower, and toilet. The display is available for large events with at least 100+ attendees expected. It must be located and moved along a hard surface, such as concrete or inside flooring, and cannot be used on grass. It also requires electricity and access to water to fill the display.

If you are interested in reserving the rolling water conservation display for your large community event, please contact externalaffairs@dcwater.com or call 202-787-2200 for more information. Requests must be made at least a month before the event, and should include the date/location of the event, event duration, loading dock information and information about the audience.
