                           2017 Menu Contest

In an effort to promote efficient water use throughout the community, RCWD began a menu contest for middle and high school students.  Students design a children’s menu that includes activities about how much water it takes to grow food, where RCWD’s water comes from, and the importance of water use efficiency.  The winning menu will be used in a local restaurant.
