In March of 2011, Beaver Water District was awarded a three-year grant of $229,250 from The Walton Family Foundation to enhance and accelerate the creation of a comprehensive Water Education Center. The Water Education Center is designed to educate both children and adults about the value of drinking water and stewardship of the watershed as a natural resource. The Water Education Center’s instructional opportunities go hand-in-hand with the District’s K-12 programs for the schools. For more information, visit  Beaver Water District supplies drinking water to more than 300,000 people and industries in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and surrounding areas, or one in 10 Arkansans.
