Hands-On Water-Related Tasks Build Sense of Pride for Area Kids

August 23, 2018 – As part of its extensive commitment to education, Rowland Water District has launched an innovative Water Conservation Patch Program for area Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The program was created to serve as a fun, educational adventure culminating with the signing of a water conservation pledge, upon which each Scout receives a patch to be worn on a sash or on the back of the child’s Scout vest.

“The patch program is designed to teach those Scouts in our service area about the importance of their water supply, where it comes from, and how to conserve this precious natural resource,” explains Tom Coleman, Rowland Water District General Manager. “With this program, we intend to teach the Scouts their role in water conservation and show each of them how to make using water wisely a way of life for the future.”

Scouts will need to complete a series of water conservation tasks aligned with their age/grade level. For Boy Scouts, the requirements are divided into Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts Levels.  For Girl Scouts, the requirements are divided into Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and Senior Girl Scout Categories. The program can be completed individually or as a troop, and is designed for Rowland Water District customers only. Completed task lists can be mailed directly to:
