Water Week Family Fun Day?

By johnboy - 21 October 2008 5

Water conservation is a serious business, it’s an important business, but is it a fun business?

For example on my list of “fun things” I find such items as: Water pistols, wet t-shirts, water slides, dancing under the sprinkler, turning the hose on a friend, and sitting in a wading pool on Australia day listening to the hottest 100 with a case of beer.

All of which are profligate on the water front.

On the other hand water conservation measures such as half-flush toilets, changing the washer on a tap, and showering standing in buckets I personally have in the “not fun things column”. Your Mileage May Vary.

Undaunted, ACTEW have announced they’re holding a Water Week Family Fun Day in which all the family can assemble at Rosary Primary School (Watson) to marvel at the gobsmacking enjoyment of public demonstrations and workshops of water efficiency measures.

Important, yes. Worthy, without question. I guess you’ll have to make your own fun.

What’s Your opinion?

I’ll have to check it out, starry, next time I’m up that way.

It was my school too. 1971-1975!

I was thinking of attending this (well the kids want to) as it’s at there school, but we haven’t read anything about it in the newsletter as yet, just over the radio.
I think it’s to promote the grass they had placed on the oval a few yrs back being more water efficient.

I was reading ‘The Braidwood Times’ (remember that name, trivia attendees) this afternoon and apparently there is a group called ‘Tapstar and the Dripettes’ doing the rounds of schools and fetes and such like, spreading the word about water usage/wastage.

Hmmmm. Best to bring the water pistols to the above, methinks.
