Meet the H2O Heroes!

Watershed Willie

Name: Watershed Willie
Hobbies: Swimming, digging holes and picking up trash

Watershed Willie is a crawfish, a fresh water crustacean closely related to lobsters. Willie is always trying to get his claw on any small meal he can, usually a snail or small fish. But pollution is one thing Willie can't get a handle on. It poisons his food and messes up his home. That's why he reminds all of us to be “pollution free and responsible.”

Cactus Callie

Name: Cactus Callie
Hobbies: Gardening, being outside, Texas history

Cactus Callie is a Prickly Pear Cactus, one of the most famous low-water use plants. Callie loves being outdoors, but she's not a big drinker. She can store water for a long time — a big advantage in the long, hot summer. Cactus Callie really conserves water and encourages us to do the same.


Name: Buckets
Age: 2
Chasing cars, barking at water wasters, being a loyal friend

When it comes to saving water, Buckets is one eager puppy. His owner is Will Saver and they're always working to help save our precious water supply. Buckets has learned some neat tricks, like turning off faucets and moving sprinklers so they don't hit the driveway. Like Buckets, we should do our best to conserve water.

Will Saver

Name: Will Saver
Age: 11
Boating, writing stories, recycling, encouraging others to be water savers

Will Saver is the perfect example of everything a good citizen should be. Together with his dog Buckets, Will is always on the lookout for faucets that have been left on, sprinklers that have run too long, and garbage that could hurt our water supply. In fact, Will's favorite day of the week is when he puts out his recycling container for the city to pick up. And every week, Will visits a local day care center to teach young kids how they can be water superheroes, too.

Crystal Clare

Name: Crystal Clare
Age: 6
Hobbies: Exercise, talking about water, drinking lots of water

Crystal Clare is a water perfectionist and knows how important water is to good health. She is always reminding friends and family to drink lots of water every day. Crystal loves reading about water and tells everyone that someday she will become a hydrologist (a water scientist).

Wendy Weather

Name: Wendy Weather
Age: 10
Hobbies: Gardening, painting, meteorology, leaf collecting

Wendy Weather loves to keep an eye on the sky. She knows almost as much about weather patterns and the water cycle as Mother Nature herself. She is always explaining to everyone that weather, which effects our water, is very unpredictable and that we should all look out for things such as droughts and floods.

Walter Works

Name: Walter Works
Age: 9
Hobbies: Reading, fishing, doing household repairs, math

Walter Works is one handy little guy. In fact, he doesn't feel comfortable unless he has a wrench in his hand. He loves to fix leaky pipes and tighten shower heads. Walter also knows almost everything there is to know about the water system—from pumps to pipes to the wastewater treatment facility. Walter quizzes everyone about how water gets to their homes.
