Events will be held across the MidCoast Water service area as part of National Water Week aim to raise awareness about the importance of water in our daily lives.
National Water week is dedicated to raising community awareness about current and future water issues and to encourage the community to take action to protect our vital water sources.
This year's theme will focus on the importance of liveable communities in which sustainable water management is a key component.
"As a community we are particularly fortunate to have good quality water and a reliable supply of drinking water, however we are always mindful of ensuring our practices are sustainable to ensure future generations will also have an ability to meet their water needs," general manager Robert Loadsman explained.
