SA Water Library

The SA Water library provides information to help our staff do their jobs. Some parts of our collection may also be of interest to the public, including photos and artefacts. Please note public borrowing from the library is not available, but you can ask your local public library to borrow items on your behalf (inter library loans). Teachers can also borrow resources from the SA Water Library's School Collection.

Photos: Current and historical
