H-GAC has three Enviroscape Watershed/Nonpoint Source Models available for loan for events and workshops.
The EnviroScape® series of portable models dramatically demonstrate water pollution concepts and their prevention. EnviroScape® effectively communicates our shared responsibility for the environment to people of all ages, languages and cultures. Our models are engaging and effective, as they create a real sense of understanding through experience and hands-on demonstration. EnviroScape® makes complex issues seem simple, helping people prevent water pollution in their own communities.
The three-dimensional landscapes (approx. 25" x 30" x 5") illustrate residential, recreational, agricultural, industrial and transportation areas — all representing possible sources of water pollution. Children and adults learn by using chemicals (drink mix) and loose soil (cocoa) throughout a typical community to see how their actions and those of others may affect our water quality. EnviroScape actually emphasizes pollution prevention with a follow-up demonstration that shows how to prevent such pollution through the use of best management practices.
The first four sets also have interactive exhibits supported by the printed materials.

H-GAC has compiled a list of OSSF fact sheets and resources online. Many are also available in Spanish.
A Category 4 Hurricane with winds up to 155 mph would create an estimated 12 million tons of debris. Disasters such as this create problems, as they are usually costly to clean up and require a large amount of space in area landfills for debris. H-GAC recognizes the need for communities to perform efficient and timely cleanup of debris generated by natural disasters and/or major storm events.
