The Sunday school children from Fernwood Park and Booysen Park Districts got first hand visualisation of how water works for them when they visited the Loerie Water Treatment Works.
The plant, which functions as a water treatment facility and purification centre, was central in surprising the children and adults of the vast cost associated with water purification. Water, being an essential and one of the most important elements on the list of basic human needs, also makes up the largest part of planet Earth, covering more than 70% of its surface covered.
The visit was in line with the environmental awareness theme of the year: Saving Water makes cents.
The municipality’s water mascot, Thontsi, added that extra measure of excitement when he happily posed with the children who were encouraged and motivated to save water and the importance of water in communities.
