LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Water Company is kicking off National “Drinking Water Week” with some science.

Channa Newman, the Louisville Water Company Education / Outreach Manager took him through the demonstrations. 

These are easy water experiments families can do at home.

Many of these experiments are ones that Channa’s team does in the classroom, at the museum and in community settings.

The water scavenger hunt makes you realize how many things in your house use water.

Easy experiments showcase the properties of water like how water is “sticky” and why some things sink or float.

Monday, May 4th is the beginning of national “Drinking Water Week” – a national themed week to highlight the value of water.
