Community Water Facility Tours
Ever wondered how water journeys from the river to our taps, or what happens after you flush? Join a tour and find out! Our facility tours are a fantastic way to get “behind the scenes” and learn from the experts as they guide you around our water infrastructure and share information about our plans for the future.
Visit our What’s On page to register for our free water facility tours, being held on Thursday 19 October.
Virtual Tours and Talks
Can’t make a live tour? Try out our virtual self-guided wastewater tour or listen along to our guided video tour of our “catchment to tap” process.
A self-guided tour to discover how we turn mucky waste water into clean, clear, safe water that can be reused or released safely back to the environment.
Listen along to our “Water is Life” tour, exploring the Koree Island Pump station, Wauchope Water Treatment Plant, and Cowarra Dam.
