Collect Water Sample
Use the water sample kit (Resealable bag with clear, sample cup, lid, and dropper) to collect a sample from any trapped water you might find. You must do this BEFORE you dump out any water you find. Didn’t find water? You don’t need to submit a sample!
Clear the area around your home
Tip out any trapped water remaining in containers onto the ground
Toss out any unused containers that might trap and hold water (even if they are currently dry). Ask for help from a family member if you can’t get rid of the water by yourself!
Return water sample to bin at school
Return water sample you collected to Return Drop Box at school. The Box will be in place starting Monday, September 26, but you MUST return your sample NO LATER than 10:00 AM on Wednesday, September 28!
No water? Congratulations! Return the unused water collection kit.
