Water 101 is a two-hour course, offered free-of-charge, to high school, college and graduate students, and members of the general public/students of life (18 years and older).
Do you want to know what is in store for California’s water supplies? With less water in the future and continued population growth, how is Southern California going to fare? For those who have always wondered how we live in a desert, but can make the region look like a lush green park, this seminar is a must. The course also addresses global water challenges and how the water community is working to meet current and future water demands.
Water 101 students can raise their "H2O IQ" by gaining valuable knowledge about water in a fun, informal setting. Students learn about water supplies from global, California and Orange County perspectives, the basics of water quality, the county’s groundwater basin and imported water supplies, recycled water supplies from Orange County's Groundwater Replenishment System, and explore the future of water in California and Orange County.
