National Water Week

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.

2017 Community Competition - Decorate a Safety Bollard

GVW will be installing a number bollards to protect our new standpipes from wayward trucks and other vehicles. They’re big, solid, car proof and yellow. Practical, but not pretty.

That’s where you come in. It’s time to dust off your paint brushes, textas, oil pastels and watercolour pencils and get your thinking caps on. We want you to design the artwork for a bollard. This is not just a colouring competition, the winners will have their designs painted onto a real bollard and get a $50 voucher.

THERE IS ONLY ONE RULE: BOLLARDS MUST BE ABOUT 60% YELLOW (they are safety bollards after all).

Completed designs must be returned to waterweek@gvwater.vic.gov.au by Thursday 19 October. Winners will be notified by phone or email.
