Water Watcher Program

One adult commits to watching the water exclusively. They may not be a lifeguard but this adult should know what to do in a water emergency, have a phone nearby, and should be focused on the children and the water. The water watcher does not drink alcohol, text, call, or leave while on duty until relieved.
