Community talks

At Southern Water we’re keen to tell you about water, how we deliver it to your home and then treat the wastewater before returning it safely to the environment.


Our programme of talks gives community groups and Key Stage 2 schools an opportunity to meet our staff and learn first hand about the vital services we provide.

The interactive 45-minute talks, including a specially-created DVD, look at how much is involved in supplying fresh, clean water and how wastewater is treated before being safely returned to the environment.

We all came away saying 'I didn’t know that!' ... It answered questions I'd wondered about for years
