Our education programme
As well as treating and supplying our customers with water, we feel it's really important to educate adults and children alike about the value of this most precious resource.
Our education programme
Flow Zone Bough Beech near Edenbridge in Kent offers schools (Key Stage 2 pupils and above) and organised groups from within our supply area the unique opportunity to visit a Water Treatment Works and go behind the scenes to find out how water is made safe to drink. The visit is free of charge during which you'll get a chance to explore our hands-on activities in the 'Blue Zone' to find out just how much water you are using!
You can also watch our video:
Here is what some teachers who have already visited have had to say:
