Arlington Water Utilities and the Arlington Public Library will wrap up their spring Wonderful Water! series this week, with an infused water workshop on Wednesday night.

The series of classes to help children and their families celebrate the value of water in their lives started Jan. 19 with a free water-themed program from the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History at the George W. Hawkes Downtown Library. Other events have included shows where children explored the magic of using water for bubble-making; storytelling focusing on water and conservation; hands-on activities teaching the life cycle of a plant; and interactions with aquatic animals from the Dallas Zoo.

Almost 300 children and adults attended the seven family-themed Wonderful Water shows this spring. Each attendee was provided with take home information about water efficiency and conservation, as well as a reusable water bottle from Arlington Water Utilities.

The last Wonderful Water! program, Infused Water: A Healthier Alternative, is geared toward teenagers and adults. It will take place from 6:30-8p.m., Wednesday at the George W. Hawkes Downtown Library.

Arlington Water Utilities encourages residents to use water wisely through a variety of outreach programs, including visits to various community events. This spring, the department also is teaming up with River Legacy Living Science Center to sponsor a series of water-themed programs in Arlington ISD elementary schools. About 320 students in five different elementary schools will take part in that program in April.
