School Water Education Program

Solano County’s School Water Education Program (SWEP) provides FREE resources for teaching water awareness and conservation.

SWEP helps K-12 educators teach youth about conserving and protecting our water resources.

Help your students understand where our community’s water comes from, how it is used, how we can conserve it, and how we can protect our local water resources. 

Schedule a class presentation focused on our local water resources (K-12), test your tap lessons (5-8), attend a field trip at the Dunnell Nature Center (2-5), or attend a teacher training. More information and video can be found at Contact SWEP Program Manager Lee Ascencio at or 707-678-1655 x117. 

Program funding is provided by Solano County Water Agency, Cities of Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun City, Vallejo, Benicia, Dixon, Rio Vista, and Solano Irrigation District.
