On Thursday a group of VCAL students visited the Lance Creek Water Treatment Plant as part of their Work Related Skills and Personal Development Skills subjects. 
These students have been involved in the ‘Tap Water Every Day’ project that has been run across South Gippsland schools by the South Coast Primary & Community Partnership, which has aimed to reduce the amount of sugar-sweetened beverages consumed by teenagers.
Part of the project highlighted that consumers of tap water like prefer that it is cheap, accessible and good quality.
We were very lucky to have Amy and Riley from South Gippsland Water show us the process of how the water is caught, cleaned and distributed to our communities.
Students also participated in conversations regarding the information and communication that is required within a role at South Gippsland Water, identified control measures to reduce hazards and were able to discuss how risks are managed at the reservoir.
