The Brazos River Authority provides numerous
opportunities to learn about projects and
services provided within the Brazos basin
as well as about water in general.
Educational resources available here
include Water School, the BRA Speakers
Bureau, Major Rivers and the Resource Library.
Water School is designed as an educational
blog site within the BRA website. Each posting
expands on a different water-related topic,
subjects include everything from water conservation,
environmental, water treatment, reservoirs and
many others. There is also a series of questions
about the BRA and services provided.
The BRA Speakers Bureau provides staff members
for speaking engagements on subjects related to
water in the Brazos basin as well as BRA operations
and services. The Speakers Bureau is free to community
organizations such as chambers of commerce and
gardening clubs. Groups frequently request our
speakers to cover topics such as water planning,
water and wastewater treatment, flood management
Major Rivers is an educational curriculum designed to
teach fourth and fifth grade students about the importance
of Texas’ major water resources. Children learn about the
water cycle, water supply and planning, watersheds and river
basins, and many other topics on how water affects the state.
The lessons incorporate science, math, language arts and
social studies with plenty of fun puzzles, games and hands-on
activities along the way to keep young learners interested.
The resource library is a compendium of articles the BRA has
published on our website and e-newsletter, “The Brazos Basin.”
Topics covered range from boating to drought to zebra mussels.
This section also includes a glossary of water terms.
