Have your students explore water issues using their mathematics skills by becoming investigative engineers! Your students will solve the problems plaguing the fictitious Rivertown wastewater treatment plant. They will do this by interpreting graphs of industrial processes. They will then connect the statistics with solutions to real-world problems.
Who? Targeted at middle school students.

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.
