This week marks National Water Week with the 2022 theme Our Water Stories encouraging both the community and organisations to share their experiences.
As part of the celebrations, Bundaberg Regional Council’s Water Services team has shared the ins and outs of working to keep the region’s water cycle maintained.
The Water Services team is made up of a wide range of roles including plumbers, electricians, fitters, business support, treatment plant operators, scientists, engineers and many more.
Council’s Water and Wastewater spokesperson Cr Jason Bartels said National Water Week was a great way for the community to become familiar with council’s water services, while also thinking about what they could do to play their part.
“I encourage everyone to take a look at the National Water Week webpage,” he said.
“It is important that we are all familiar with the importance of water within our community, as we can all play our part in conserving water.”
Among the activities to take part in on the page as the ability to take a virtual tour of the East water tower, find out all about water cycles and get some tips and tricks for water conservation.
While there are currently no water restrictions applicable to the Bundaberg Region, the conservation of water is important for the environment and the future.
