The main purposes of this study were to obtain a comprehensive understanding regarding the students' the sources of knowledge on the conservation of water resources and experiences towards their living environment. Demographic variables such as gender, education of parents, participation of water resource activities, the learning of Earth Science Courses and the sufficient resources of water were considered independent variables; Furthermore, cohesion between these independent variables and dependent variables such as the knowledge about water resources, the attitudes towards the conservation of water resources and the behaviors to conserve water resources were explored.
The Investigative Questionnaire on the Knowledge, Attitudes and Behavior towards Water Resources amongst different graders in junior high school was the tool used in the study upon completion of examination on its validity and reliability. This questionnaire included four aspects: (1) personal information, (2) the knowledge in relations to water, (3) the attitudes towards the conservation of water resources, and (4) the behaviors to conserve water resources; the reliability values of the above aspects were .781, .857 and .870, respectively. The research subjects of the study were the second graders and third graders in the public junior high in Nantou County, and the survey through questionnaires was done using randomly sampling, with 309 valid questionnaires from all the questionnaires collected. After compilation of all the data, a statistical analysis was done on the samples using descriptive statistics, T test, one-way ANOVA in inferential statistics, as well as Pearson's product-moment correlation. The main findings of this study were as follows:
1. That there are 250 students whose families use tap water as their household water accounts for 81%; 42% of the students consider the main environmental problem comes from the over-deforestation.; 42% of the students believed that Taiwan is a country with insufficient water resources.
2. The primary source of information for the students on the knowledge about water resources came from mass media such as TV.
3. There were significant differences of the water knowledge on parents' level of education, participation of conservation of water resources, the Earth Science courses and the sufficient resources of water; besides, significant differences showed between students' attitude toward Water Resources and the learning of Earth Science Courses, the sufficient resources of water as well. For those who have behaviors to conserve water resources have positive water conservation attitudes. The variables such as participation of water conversation of water resources, the learning of Earth Science Courses and the sufficient resources of water showed significant differences on students' water conversation behaviors.
4. The students' knowledge about water and the attitudes towards the conservation of water resources were significantly correlated; moreover, the former also had significant correlations with the behaviors to conserve water sources; the attitudes and behaviors to conserve water resources were significantly correlated.
