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. Please fill out this form to request BJWSA participation.
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.
