Stormwater Science

This program teaches that the health of the Rio Grande is directly tied to the health of its surrounding watershed and arroyos. Students investigate how a storm impacts river health by looking at a watershed model with different sized communities and the pollution each one produces.

Encourage students to learn about stormwater drainages in Albuquerque, how that affects our Rio Grande, and what you can do to help limit pollution in the river!

Lesson 1

Follow this worksheet (in English or Spanish) as you watch this Stormwater Science video (Part 1) to learn more about watersheds and other water concepts.

...
Lesson 3.1

Follow this worksheet (in English or Spanish) as you watch this Stormwater Science video (Part 3.1). This video will go over where all the water goes after a storm event, the difference between permeable and impermeable surfaces and the problems of flash flood events.

Lesson 3.3

Follow this worksheet (in English or Spanish) as you watch this Stormwater Science video (Part 3.3). This video will continue to explore how the imaginary watershed model changed AFTER the storm event through data visualizations to better understand how storms might impact the overall water quality of the river.

Lesson 2

Follow this worksheet (in English or Spanish) as you watch this Stormwater Science video (Part 2) that will go over an imaginary watershed model to understand which types of pollutants are released into the water from different communities.

Lesson 3.2

Follow this worksheet (in English or Spanish) as you watch this Stormwater Science video (Part 3.2). This video will go over how the different parameters might change AFTER a storm event in our imaginary watershed model.
