See what we doo when you flush the loo!
Ever wondered what happens to water once it disappears down the drain, sink or toilet?
Gippsland Water is inviting customers to take part in free community tours of the Warragul Wastewater Treatment Plant to put those questions to rest.
“Generally we don’t think about what happens to water after we have used it, and Gippsland Water would like to show some of the things we are doing ‘behind the scenes’ that customers may not always appreciate” said Paul Clark, Gippsland Water’s General Manager Customer Service and Communications.
The Warragul Wastewater Treatment Plant event is on Saturday the 30th of April and will feature guided tours of the facility with employees on hand to answer questions.
“Wastewater or sewerage charges are the largest part of all of our customer’s bills. These tours will allow us to show customers how their waste is handled and processed and just where some of that money they pay goes.”
"This is a wonderful opportunity for people to see a working treatment plant in action, and have all their questions about wastewater answered by experienced staff” said Mr Clark.
Those wishing to take part in a tour will need to register by calling 1800 050 500 or via the Gippsland Water website www.gippslandwater.com.au/tours
Due to Occupational Health and Safety regulations, the tours are strictly for participants 12 years and over. Visitors touring the site will be required to wear long pants, long shirts and closed toe shoes when visiting the site.
