Shoalhaven Water offering free wastewater and water tours
July 25, 2011
Shoalhaven Water will be opening the doors to the public through a series of free water and wastewater treatment plant tours as part of the upcoming Local Government Week celebrations beginning Monday 1 August
Taking in both the Bamarang Water plant and the Callala Wastewater treatment plant the tours are designed to help the community better understand and appreciate the treatment processes.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green said the tour would provide residents with the rare opportunity to witness the treatment process and learn more about Shoalhaven Water’s continuing long-term maintenance of the area’s waterways and surrounding environment.
“Many residents may not realise how much work goes in to providing the Shoalhaven with vital water and sewerage services,” said Clr Green.
“These tours will offer the community the chance to see how Shoalhaven Water collects, purifies and finally treats the area’s water once it’s been used.
“The tours will also provide an insight into some of Shoalhaven Water’s award winning conservation practices, including the acclaimed Recycled Water Management Scheme (REMS) at the Callala Sewage Treatment Plant. “
“I would encourage all local residents with an interest in the amazing work carried out by Shoalhaven Water to get involved and take a tour of facilities as part of the upcoming Local Government Week.”
Tours will be taking place on Tuesday 2 August and Wednesday 3 August.
