Overview

Follow Winn and Doug on the incredible journey of water—through the water cycle all the way to wastewater treatment and back again.

Have you ever wondered where the water in your house comes from or where it goes after you use it? Explore the different phases of Winn’s life through the water cycle—from water vapor to water runoff. Then follow Doug to see how water gets clean after we use it! Part of a STEAM career-themed picture book series, Winn and Doug, the Waterdrops shows kids where water comes from and where it goes once it gets here—and why those processes are so important. Water resource engineers and wastewater operators have incredibly vital jobs that make the world a better place.

About the Author

He specializes in comprehensive surface water management planning, innovative best management practice design, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, drainage design and construction plan review, and NPDES Phase I & II MS4 and construction stormwater permitting requirements. He couples GIS techniques with water resources design and analysis. Tim enjoys brewing beer as a side hobby, “It’s perfect for an engineer that likes science.”
