This week is National Water Week 2014! National Water Week is an annual celebration of water in Australia which occurs in the third week of October.
National Water Week was first held in 1993. The initiative is designed to help members of the community of all ages and walks of life to understand and take action to protect and conserve our precious water resources and habitats. During National Water Week Australians are encouraged to Protect, Conserve and Get Involved in water resource management.
The theme for National Water Week 2014 is ‘Water sources: there are more than you think.’ In line with that theme, we’ve put together a series of blog posts that look at the range of water sources that are available for different purposes.
Other than just reading up on water, there are some fantastic ways that you can join in the events this National Water Week. Water providers across the country run programs throughout the week. Take a look at what’s happening across Australia.
Every year, a number of water authorities join together to promote the Water Week Poster Competition. Make sure you check out the winners on the VicWater website.
We also have a range of online activities on the savewater!® website:
