What’s happening under your feet?

30/03/2019 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us on a free fact-finding field trip to find out where our drinking water comes from and other things like:

  • Is our city water as good as often claimed?
  • What is being done to protect our drinking water quality?
  • Why do we need to chlorinate?
  • What else is our groundwater used for and will it ever run out?

On the field trip local experts will discuss our unique groundwater system and challenges facing our urban waterways. Come along and get your questions answered.
