Water is a valuable resource; it is essential for life and is recycled continually. Humans directly impact the quality and quantity of water available every single day.
- Have you ever wondered why water is treated?
- Do you know where your local drinking water catchment is?
- How is sewage treated?
- What has public health got to do with treated water?
- How can you make a difference in conserving water and protecting the environment?
- What is the urban water cycle?
Answers to those questions and many others can be provided through TasWater's customer education programs.
To allow a greater focus on community event attendance TasWater no longer offers incursions, instead we offer lesson plans on the following topics:
- The natural and urban water cycles
- Environmental impacts on water
- Making water safe to drink
- Conserving water
- Water for health
- Where sewage comes from
- How sewage is treated
The Australian Water Association also has heaps of resources available to help you in the classroom.
Our talented TasWater staff are always happy to share their knowledge about our industry with your professional, community or service group meetings.
Presentation content can include updates about your local treatment plants, unpacking water and sewerage charges, discovering what Trade Waste is, understanding our role when developing properties and learning about water quality and our efforts to protect the environment.
