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.

This year we are celebrating National Water Week with school and community events. The community are invited to join Goulburn Valley Water staff for a tour of a Water Treatment Plant.
