National Water Week 2013 runs from 20-26 October and the theme is ‘Liveable Communities'.
National Water Week is an annual awareness week that aims to improve community understanding of water issues.
Every year, Westernport Water celebrates National Water Week (NWW) and runs numerous events to help educate the community about the value of water, check out our what's happening page for a calendar of events planned for 2013.

Westernport Water has been flooded with responses for its Annual Poster Competition for National Water Week 2012.
All local primary school students were invited to make a poster that best represented the theme of ‘Valuing our Water’.
Over 355 entries from all schools within our district were submitted, with many of the posters showing a strong awareness of water conservation and sustainable themes. Finalists were selected from each Category and sent to Melbourne where they were judged with other entries from across the state.

This year, Westernport Water will again offer guided tours of our water facilities to local schools. Students will visit the Candowie Reservoir and the Ian Bartlett Water Purification Plant to help provide an understanding of where we get our water from and what happens before we consume it.
