Dougherty County students are learning about the importance of water.

The 9th annual water festival at the Flint Riverquarium started today.

5th grade students from all over Dougherty County listened to our meteorologist Chris Zelman talk about the water cycle.

Students will not only learn about the weather, but also the importance of conserving water and even the importance of washing their hands.

"Hand sanitizer is not going to work. When you wash your hands it gets all the germs off your hands," says Ambreia Stephens, 5th grade.

"Each station addresses a different water use, we will have water in agriculture, water pollution, water conservation, 10 different areas of water so our young people understand that the water we have today is all the water we are ever going to have," says Judy Bowles, Keep Albany/Dougherty Beautiful Exec. Director.

The festival will run Wednesday and Thursday from 9AM until 2PM.
