EMWD seeks to foster an understanding of important water, wastewater and recycled water issues among the future leaders of the community it serves, while promoting wise water use. Therefore, EMWD supports an extensive education program designed to provide a useful academic experience at all grade levels (K-12).
If your school is located within EMWD’s service area and you would like to teach your students about water, wastewater and recycled water EMWD has lesson plans, curriculum packets, student materials and much more!

Join EMWD for a Bird Walk and share the opportunity to view ibises, egrets, blackbirds and many other migratory and resident birds in their natural habitat at the EMWD Wetlands.
Located on the grounds of the San Jacinto Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility, the multi-purpose constructed wetlands “polishes” recycled water before it is distributed to nearby farms, dairies, and the San Jacinto Wildlife Area for irrigation and additional environmental uses.
EMWD’s Education program offers field trips and classroom presentations for students in grade levels 3-12 from the 11 school districts and private schools within its service area. Each field trip is limited to a maximum of 35 students and requires a teacher plus three chaperones to attend. Classroom presentations can be in-person or virtual in-lieu of a field trip. We have three field trips and three class room presentation options available, according to grade level. Field trips range from 1 hour to 3.5 hours.
