GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Educational materials on the use and saving of water were given to the Greencastle-Antrim School District's Tayamentasachta Environmental Center Wednesday for curriculum use by students on all grade levels.

The materials were presented to the center by the Greencastle Area, Franklin County, Water Authority. They were financed through a grant, said Kenneth E. Myers, borough manager for Greencastle, and manager of the water authority.

Charles White, Tayamentasachta director, accepted the materials.

Among them was a TAP Water Kit, which stands for Talking About Pennsylvania Water. It was developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the American Water Works Association.

The kit contains video tapes and compact discs with informational material plus lesson plans on water, where it comes from, how to protect watersheds and a section on conserving water.

White also received two water quality educator monitoring kits for use in the environmental center's educational programs.

The kits will allow students to perform water quality tests to learn about the quality of water from local sources, Myers said.

The authority also gave the school district posters promoting the protection of drinking water sources.
