La Vernia Junior High School is wrapping up one of the most comprehensive units to date in Mrs. Hinojosa’s seventh-grade science class. The unit was brought to a close by having two guest speakers visit the classes to go over the effects we have on our aquifers as well as how the cycle is completed with the storage of our water sources.

A representative from the San Antonio Water System came to the junior high and gave a presentation to each science class on how the water filtrates to our watershed and our local aquifer, and through a model, the students were able to see how pollution infiltrates our water supply.

The following week, the students had a visitor from the San Antonio River Authority who came and taught the many types of non-point source pollutions that affect our rivers and watersheds on a daily basis. The young scientists were given a demonstration using a topographical model where the students were able to produce “rain” to show surface runoff patterns. The focus of the experiment was to show how runoff carries water into our rivers, creeks, and watersheds.
