Only Rain Down the Drain!!

Our second session with Sally from Watercare was also very exciting. Sally showed us how our houses have water pipes that bring clean water and pipes that take dirty water away to be cleaned.

She explained that we need to be mindful not to pour anything down drains that could be toxic or that could hurt or damage our oceans and sea creatures. Paint, washing soap, rubbish and the like all can go directly into the sea. Take paint back to the paint shop, cover drains with a towel to absorb the soap when you wash cars. Then wash those towels in a washing machine - the soap and chemicals will go into our waste pipes and will be treated at the water treatment places.

We enjoyed playing team games out doors to see which of our streams and rivers travelled most directly to the "sea".
