Facility Tours: Public education is important at BJWSA. We offer tours of our facilities Tuesdays through Thursdays by appointment. We try to accommodate most groups of 25 or less in one tour. Closed-toe shoes are required, and children under 8 may not have access to the entire program. See a video of our tour of our Cherry Point and Chelsea plants with Bluffton Middle School here.
Community Events: We provide water stations to environmental and educational non-profit organizations. Our non-profit status does not allow us to provide monetary sponsorships.
S.T.E.M. Engagement: In an effort to foster an advanced future workforce, we are particularly eager to support S.T.E.M. programs and festivals. Our traveling program, developed by staff, is engaging for children and adults.
Speakers Bureau: Staff is available to present on a variety of topics— from treatment of drinking water and wastewater to our environmental and educational commitments. We serve as guest lecturers, panelists and policy experts in our industry. We can target presentations toward government, business, education, retirees or combined community audiences at the local and regional levels.
Resources and activities for teachers and parents: Visit our fun activities page here for educational information presented with a variety of experiments and tools. Share these with your children/students and help them learn about water and wastewater in a unique manner.
