Water Week

Water - the heart of our culture

This is the theme for National Water Week in 2017, and MidCoast Water always has plenty planned to help the Manning, Great Lakes and Gloucester communities give some thought to a resource we use each and every day!whizzy tap

National Water Week is held in October each year and this year's theme encourages us to explore how water shapes our everyday lives through recreational activities, the natural world and our community values.
