Order a Hazardous Waste Cleanup and Prevention Poster!

These posters are a series of water-resources education posters developed through the Water Resources Education Initiative. The Water Resources Education Initiative is a cooperative effort between public and private education interests. Partners in the program include the U.S. Geological Survey, Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Groundwater Foundation, and the National Science Teachers Association.

The completed posters in the series are entitled, "Water, The Resource That Gets Used and Used and Used for Everything!," "How Do We Treat Our Wastewater?," "Wetlands: Water, Wildlife, Plants, and People!," "Ground Water: The Hidden Resource!," "Water Quality: Potential Sources of Pollution," "Navigation: Traveling the Water Highway," "Hazardous Waste Cleanup and Prevention," "Watersheds: Where We Live," and "Oceans - Coastal Hazards: Hurricanes, Tsunamis, Coastal Erosion." The posters in the series are designed to be joined to create a wall mural.

Water-resources topics of the posters are drawn in a cartoon format by the same artist. Posters are available in color or black-and-white. The reverse sides of the color posters contain educational activities: one version for children in grades 3-5 and the other with activities for children in grades 6-8. The black-and-white posters are intended for coloring by children in grades K-2.

Copies of the nine posters in the series (color or black-and-white, for grades K-2, 3-5, or 6-8) can be obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey. Write to the address below and specify the poster title(s) and grade level(s) desired. Please write, call, or e-mail to order:
