SA Water produces a range of education resources for use in the classroom. All of them are free, and many can be downloaded below. We also carry teaching resources in the SA Water Library.
The Captain Plop books are a series of three titles suitable for students in years one to four. However, they are also popular with some older students.
The titles deal with water conservation, desalination and sewage recycling. Copies have been sent to all South Australian school libraries. Additional copies are available from the SA Water Library.

Customers in the southern suburbs through to the Adelaide CBD may notice a temporary change to the colour of their water. The water remains safe to drink.
Suburbs affected may include:
Clapham, Pasadena, Cumberland Park, Westbourne Park, Kingswood, Goodwood, Keswick, Unley, Panorama, Belair and Adelaide CBD.
We have begun flushing parts of the surrounding network as a result of new pipe work being installed to support the South Road Darlington Upgrade works. We will continue to test the water quality and are in contact with SA Health. All test results are compliant with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. At this stage we anticipate the water will return to normal by late this evening.
If you have concerns, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
