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.

SA Water customers in Goolwa and surrounding areas, including Goolwa Beach, Goolwa South, Goolwa North and Hindmarsh Island may currently be experiencing discoloured or milky water coming out of their taps.
This water remains safe to drink.
During recent planned maintenance in the area, some existing sediment in the local water supply network has been stirred up, resulting in the discoloured water.
We are working hard to resolve the issue, and we are flushing out the discoloured water. Given the size of the water network in the area, this may take some time. At this stage, we are hoping water supply will return to normal by Friday afternoon.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and provide updates on our website and Facebook page.
