Free guided tours of the SA Water plants
We all need water to survive. Our human body consists of up to 75% water and cannot last more than a few days without it. Water is essential for most of our body functions including blood, digestive juices, muscle, fat, bones, etc. It is an important substance and there would have been no life on earth without water.

In South Australia, SA Water plays a crucial role in managing our state's water services. Safe clean drinking water is provided to over a million people. And once used, the wastewater is removed and treated.

We are privileged to be able to tour three of the SA Water plants (for free) and learn more about water.

Firstly, you can take a tour of the Happy ValleyWater Treatment Plant on Chandlers Hill Road in Happy Valley. Water goes through a treatment process before ending up in our taps.

Secondly, you can take a tour of the BolivarWastewaterTreatment Plant on Hodgson Road in Bolivar. Wastewater is treated for health and environmental reasons.

And thirdly, you can take a tour of the Kauwi Interpretive Centre and Adelaide Desalination Plant on Chrysler Road in Lonsdale. Sea water is turned into drinking water through a desalination process.
