Three Waters Education Model

Learn about water with this fun educational model! The interactive display allows students and adults to play with water, stormwater and wastewater pipes - including pumping water from the river, making it rain and seeing treated water leave the wastewater treatment plant. The model can spark discussions about where our drinking water comes from, where wastewater goes and water conservation. 
This portable working model can easily be set up at your school. Most of the water is contained within the model but there will be a few splashes. Ideally it should be set up in a sheltered area outside or in a hall.
