Hello Educators & Parents

We've created an educational resource page featuring lessons you can use to teach your students about water. Lessons are formatted in videos and PDF's that can be easily shared with students.  We're here to support and supplement learning about important water topics. We'll be updating and adding to this list so be sure to check back often.

ACWD Virtual Tour: Fish Passage Projects in Alameda Creek
Catch a recording of the tour here and join Anna, the steelhead trout, with ACWD friends, for a fun and educational up-close look at our fish passage projects in Alameda Creek! 

Every attendee has the best seat in the house as we take you down into the creek bed and alongside the installation of a state-of-the-art fish ladder and give you a behind-the-scenes look at the operation of one of our inflatable rubber dams and first fish ladder, fish screens and water diversion pipelines. Tour-goers will get a near fish-eye-view of the journey Anna, the steelhead trout, will be able to take once our projects are complete.

These projects have been decades in the making, with the help of our many partners, and are now nearing completion. We'll show the magnitude of these $78 million dollar projects (with partner support and grants) designed to allow threatened steelhead trout, like Anna and other fish species, to migrate easily and safely upstream and downstream. The project will also allow ACWD to maintain reliable water supplies for residents and businesses in Fremont, Newark and Union City. Following the 45-minute tour is  a 15-minute Q&A session with ACWD staff.
