Sustainability planner Heather Merenda shows the effect of pollution in stormwater which leads to the Santa Clara River on a model at the Newhall Library on Wednesday.

The city of Santa Clarita went 3-D to teach students how to prevent pollution at the Newhall Library one day last week.

City officials used a three-dimensional landscape model called an “enviroscape” to show how different actions and materials can unintentionally contribute to water pollution.

This included demonstrations on how materials like motor oil can be swept into storm drains, which then drain out into the Santa Clara River, the ocean or Santa Clarita’s drinking water.

Wednesday’s demonstration was the first of three that will be held around the city in the coming months. The next presentation will be April 10 at the Valencia Library, and the final one will be May 8 at the Canyon Country Library.
