Teacher Resources

Station List

This list is from the 2017 Pikes Peak Children's Water Festival. It's provided here to give teachers an idea of the types of activities and organizations presenting at the Water Festival. The 2018 activity list will be available on this page in April 2018.

Detention Pond Nearing Completion

Work is underway  just north of Woodmen Road between Rangewood Drive and Yellowwood Drive to build a full spectrum detention pond to help manage stormwater flows and maintain the quality of water returning back to our creeks. About 18,000 cubic yards, the equivalent of 6 Olympic-size swimming pools, was removed from the site and will be later used in a large stormwater project to stabilize the channel along Sand Creek near Platte Avenue.

Global Fat Bike Day

Join us on Sand Creek and Platte Ave. to see a stormwater project that will incorporate multi-use trails and fat bikes!

If you don't have a fat bike, you can demo one! Please call 719-385-5033 or email to reserve your demo bike ahead of time.

All participants must bring a helmet to wear. 

Enter through the main gate of the flea market (5225 E Platte Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80915) and then participants will be instructed where to park.

Stormwater Project Addresses Flooding Problems in Southeast Neighborhood

Thanks to voter approval allowing the City to retain $6 million in excess revenues over the TABOR cap for 2016 to be used for stormwater projects, neighbors near Airport and Chelton will see some welcome relief from localized flooding that has been impacting this neighborhood.

Our Water Resources Engineering Division installed a large inlet on the east side of Chelton Road to carry surface stormwater flows below ground into a large stormwater pipeline that runs beneath Chelton.

Creek Cleanup

Help us clean up the creek!

Youth under age 18 must participate with at least one supervising adult 21 years+ (minimum of one adult for every 10 children).  This is a perfect opportunity for service clubs, sports teams, college groups, business, neighborhood associations, community service organizations to join together for the common cause of cleaning up our land and waters.

We'll meet on the north side of the park.
