All of this water supplies Pietermaritzburg and Durban!

As part of our Clean that Water Up Challenge we were so very lucky to go on a visit to the Umgeni Water Treatment Plant in Howick.We as well as the adults with us had absolutely no idea about how our water gets clean and we were very impressed by the millions of litres that get cleaned daily in this plant to supply all of Pietermaritzburg and Durban every day!! We saw the huge aqueduct and saw the massive amounts of chemicals that are added as well as the huge settling ponds and sand filters... we also heard the roar of the huge pumps that keep the water moving. We now realise how much effort goes into cleaning our water - lots of time, energy, money, chemicals and carbon. We pledge to use our cleaned water wisely!
