Sacramento County Stormwater Quality Program works
with the Sacramento Splash center to offer Splash in the Classroom
presentations which is a fun and interactive way to teach students about
stormwater pollution. Students learn about pollutants that harm our
waterways and how to play a role in protecting creeks and rivers. For
more information or to sign up for a presentation, please visit the Splash in the Class website or call (916) 364-2437.
