Water Week

Water - life - growth

This is the theme for National Water Week in 2016, 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 focuses on how we can all help to protect and conserve our precious water resources and habitats.

Bootawa and Tea Gardens Water Treatment Plants open for tours

We will also be holding tours for members of the public at both our Bootawa Water Treatment Plant and our Tea Gardens Water Treatment Plant.

The tour at Bootawa Water Treatment Plant will be held on Sunday October 23 at 10am, and on Wednesday October 26 at 10am.

The Tea Gardens tour will be held on Wednesday October 19, at 10am.
