H2O Hero Campaign

The Water Education Collaborative (WEC) is a coalition of organizations that work together to increase water quality education in the community. The purpose of the Collaborative is to inspire people to help protect and improve water quality in the streams and other water bodies of the Genesee Region watershed, and ultimately our greatest natural resource: Lake Ontario. A primary focus of the WEC’s message is to keep household pollutants out of these storm drains. The H2O Hero is designed to raise awareness and educate our community on how our everyday activities impact our water quality, since more than 80% of water pollution problems stem from residential areas, not industrial areas. Knowledge is power, and every H2O hero gets his or her superpowers by knowing everything possible about our waterways and how to keep them clean. To obtain more information on this topic and the H2O Hero’s efforts visit www.h2ohero.org and be an H2O Hero!
