If you are experiencing an interruption of water service in the Gamblewood area, we are currently working to repair a main break and are hoping to have the issue resolved this evening, June 27, 2017. Once service is restored, you may experience discolored water or a decrease in pressure for a short period of time.

  • Rainfall to Tap 3rd - 4th Grades
    The KPUD is offering a newly designed presentation series that teaches about drinking water from "Rainfall to tap". Taking the systems approach, the two lessons will cover the water cycle, groundwater, drinking water wells, the connection between streams and groundwater, and water chemistry. The connection between people and drinking water will be emphasized.

    Click on the links under each lesson to open the documents and use as you like. You may even want to use the glossary for your next spelling test!

    Lesson one - Groundwater Model (60 minutes)
    Students will learn about drinking water by creating a groundwater model. Students will layer gravel to form aquifers, make it rain and pump wells. Students will observe human influence on groundwater by adding impervious surfaces, introducing pollution and creating recharge areas.

    Lesson two - Tap into Goodness (60 minutes)
    Part one: Students will examine ecological, social and economic systems by comparing tap water and bottled water by participating in a blind taste test.
    Part two: By using safe-to-use testing reagents, students will test drinking water for iron and chlorine. Students will use the scientific process by making predictions, using a control and recording results.
