The ACPWQ prides itself on being a resource for education and educators.  In addition to the various modules available for loan listed below, we also provide other services.

Presentations:  These range from the more common agency outreach to the uncommon presence of "Dr. I.C. Coldwater" and "Cap'n Sam Read, Sweetwater Pirate."  Think stormwater education and water quality as "dry" subjects? Think again!

Many of these activities and presentations can help to meet ISTEP standards.  If you aren't comfortable with presenting the material in your classroom or meeting, we may be able to do it for you.  the best news is that if you are located in Allen County, there is no charge for this service.

Explore the science and surprise of our water resources.  If you don't find what you need, please try the "Water Quality Links" or "Publications" pages.
