Watershed Outreach and Education Program
ADEQ's Watershed Outreach and Education Program offers a variety of services and tools to facilitate and promote awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources.
Everyone lives in a watershed. A watershed is an area of land that drains into a central water system, such as a lake, river, or even the ocean. Water that the ground doesn't absorb washes into the nearest body of water, taking with it whatever it passes over, including soil, leaked motor fluids, fertilizers, and pesticides.
Why Watersheds Matter
Watersheds provide our drinking water, habitat for wildlife, soil in which to grow our food, and the streams, rivers, and lakes we use for fishing, boating, and swimming. We all share a common interest in having a healthy watershed.
The Watershed Outreach and Education section offers a variety of programs to promote awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of natural resources, with an emphasis on water conservation.

The everyday actions of the people who live in a watershed affect the overall health of the watershed. Find out how you can help.
