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.
