National Water Week is celebrated during October each year across Australia. To celebrate National Water Week, we organise free events, competitions and activities for school students and members of the community. Water Week celebrations help raise awareness of the need to value and conserve water as a precious resource that brings life and prosperity to our region.
In 2022 we celebrated National Water Week with school and community events. The community was invited to join Goulburn Valley Water staff for a tour of a water treatment plant. We had to postpone the tours because of the floods but you can register for a tour in March 2023:
