New TasWater videos offer a look behind the scenes

The community is invited to go behind the scenes to learn how TasWater captures, stores, and treats 179 million litres of drinking water every day – an amount that if put into one litre cartons and placed side by side would circumnavigate Tasmania 4.1 times. 
As part of a continued focus on education, TasWater is releasing an online video series which follows TasWater staff undertaking their important role in delivering safe drinking water and looking after more than 187,000 sewerage connections taking waste to 110 sewage treatment plants.
The video series focuses on three major pillars of water service delivery.
Titled A Deeper Dive, the series looks at the environment, science, and engineering aspects of TasWater’s responsibilities, introducing viewers to a range of key disciplines, specialists, and innovations.
From a simple demonstration on how TasWater treats the water delivered to customers, to the technology used to find leaks, the videos provide an inside look at TasWater’s operation. Viewers even get to meet the people whose job it is to make sure the water is not just safe to drink but also tastes nice. 
A new short video will be released on social media every three weeks throughout the course of the year, with longer-form videos published on YouTube and the TasWater website.
Department Manager Community Stakeholder and Customer Relations Ruth Dowty said the videos were an easily accessible way for Tasmanians to learn a little more about what TasWater does.
“We’ve worked hard with these videos to try to shine a light on some of the work that is perhaps less visible to our customers,” Ms Dowty said.
“There are a great many highly skilled specialists within our organisation doing work that is not front-of-mind when people think about water and sewage services.”
“These social media videos can give Tasmanians a peek at just how much work goes into getting water to our taps every day.”
