Keeping a Safe Drinking Water Supply
Students at Humboldt Public School will be learning how to preserve safe drinking water and keeping the environment clean.
The Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corporation was at the school on Thursday, presenting a cheque for $10,000 for the Safe Drinking Water Foundation.
"We have a tag line that says one litre of used oil can contaminate one million litres of fresh water," he explained.
"Working with students and working with schools through the Safe Water Foundation is a good way to work with students and tell them how they can protect the environment."
HPS received four water drop kits and one water pollution kit from the SDWF, which will be used in science class by Grade 8 students.
"Our program involves recycling used oil, antifreeze, filters and oil, antifreeze and DEF containers so we can keep these materials out of the environment and help keep our water safe."
Wrubleski added that for those in the Humboldt area, there is an easy option to recycle oil and antifreeze.
"There is an eco centre at the transfer station at the landfill south of town," he said.
"People can bring small quantities of their used oil, antifreeze, filters and oil, antifreeze and DEF containers."
