H2O Honor Roll Program:

Responsible water use is the right thing to do. We live in a desert after all! We invite your class to join the H2O Honor Roll by discovering and sharing creative ways to save water inside and outside their homes at TMWA’s interactive Web site: www.howdoyousave.org.

All participating students will be listed on the H2O Honor Roll.
