MASWU General Manager, John Hawk and Office/Finance Manager Mary Pywell (not pictured) presented "Gooey Garbage" to McPherson County 4th graders at the Children's Water Festival in October. The students built a model of a landfill using plastic bottles and plastic liners. They used things like cereal, soil, mustard, etc. to emphasize that many items that are put in the landfill can be handled through recycling, Household Hazardous Waste, and compost. They also demonstrated the importance of the landfill liner and how it protects the drinking water.  This session along with many others throughout the day helped teach the youngsters about the importance/value of water.
