Gippsland Water amongst the flowering gums of Drouin
Gippsland Water staff will be amongst the spectacular flowering gums of Drouin at this weekend’s Ficifolia Festival.
The local Water Corporation will be taking the opportunity to set up stall and chat with customers at the popular event in Civic Park from 10am on Saturday.
“We’re always keen to hear what customers have to say and attending events like the Ficifolia Festival presents an opportunity to get out in to the local community and find out what the concerns and needs are,” said Paul Clark, Gippsland Water’s General Manager Customer Service and Communications.
“We will also take the opportunity to explain some of the things we are doing ‘behind the scenes’ that customers may not always appreciate” continued Mr Clark.
The Gippsland Water stand will feature information about the ‘Stop it, Don’t Block it’ campaign which aims to remind customers what should and should not go in a toilet or down a sink.
“Blockages to our sewer pipes cost us many, many thousands of dollars each year so we hope this campaign can just give people a little reminder about what not to put down the loo or the drain” added Paul.
While this is the first time Gippsland Water has attended the Drouin Ficifolia Festival, similar gatherings have become a feature of the Corporation’s calendar.
“We have attended similar community events and they have provided us with invaluable insight in to the growing needs of our customers, which allows us to better understand where we should focus our efforts” concluded Mr Clark.
Gippsland Water staff will be at the Ficifolia Festival from 10am till 4pm on Saturday February 14th.
