From science experiments to face painting to watching StageOne performances, the 400 people who attended the Summer Quest Kickoff Festival at the Bullitt County Central Library Branch in Shepherdsville could participate in a wide range of activities.
The attendees also could decorate river rocks as they learned how riverbank filtration can help treat drinking water.
“Louisville Water provided Pure Tap®, passed out bottles and Tapper tattoos, and set up a display on the riverbank filtration process,” said Community Relations Specialist Barbara Crow. “Kids got to decorate a river rock to remind them that rocks and sand in the aquifer help clean our drinking water. Adults received water shutoff valve tags for their home and information on detecting leaks.”
The Louisville Water activities were located in an outdoor courtyard, and Crow said many children chose to leave their decorated rocks in the courtyard rock garden “for others to enjoy.”
