Students from Clarkson Community High School will soon be ‘full bottle’ on Australia’s first full-scale Groundwater Replenishment Scheme currently being constructed in Craigie, during a visit from Water Corporation this week.

The visit is part of National Water Week, held in October each year to build awareness and understanding in students around water issues, and opportunities for growth and innovation. 

This year’s them is Water Innovation.
 
Water Corporation A/General Manager Customer and Community Group, David Juers, said students at Clarkson Community High School would learn about the many pioneering technologies being developed to treat wastewater.

“Water recycling technology is being used as part of the Groundwater Replenishment Scheme, where recycled water will be further treated and recharged into groundwater supplies.   

“National Water Week is the perfect opportunity for students to learn about this innovative water treatment process,” Mr Juers said.

“Visits like this form part of our Waterwise Schools Program – last year our team educated more than 24,800 students through incursions and excursions.

Clarkson Community High School’s English teacher Mrs Eve Kiddie, said National Water Week was a great opportunity to educate students.   

“Water education at our school is across all year levels as part of curriculum,” Mrs Kiddie said.

“This year our Society and Environment, English and Science teachers are sharing the water  topic, with students writing a report on water recycling in their English classes.”
