Who knew that accepting a water-agency challenge would lead to far-reaching water conservation efforts at the Santa Clarita Valley's largest employer?

Over the past several months, we had the opportunity to partner with Six Flags Magic Mountain to incorporate water education for employees and park guests. Our project was accepted as part of the Six Flags "Go Green" initiative to promote conservation at their theme parks nationwide.

On Earth Day, 2010, on display in all Six Flags restaurants will be table toppers that have several different conservation tips. In employee areas, there will be a PowerPoint presentation that will play continuously throughout the work day as a reminder of the many ways that employees can conserve water, both at home and in the workplace.

Daily employees receive a time slip which reflects their work hours; each slip will display conservation tips. In addition to these implemented programs, we developed a poster that will be displayed in the employee-service area reminding employees of water-conservation education. Six Flags Magic Mountain in Santa Clarita has agreed to drain the Four Thousand Lake and create a water-resistant garden in its place.

Our partnership with Magic Mountain and the Castaic Lake Water Agency gave us a unique opportunity to be mentored and guided by professionals within our community. This was a hands-on opportunity to participate in a professional manner with one of the largest employers in the Santa Clarita Valley. The monetary award from CLWA will assist us in our continuing college education.

We would encourage all of our Hart district friends to participate in the future challenges.

Alex Davis and Todd Davis are juniors at Saugus High School.
