Schools visit water treatment plant 8 August 2003

During the last four weeks of the school term, pupils from Scoill Phurt Le Moirrey, Victoria Road, Castletown and Murray's Road primary schools visited the Water Treatment Works at Glencrutchery, to enjoy an information-packed visit to round off the school year.

Children from each primary school were given a special tour of the works, which supplies water to Douglas, Onchan and the South of the Island.

Chris Wilson, the Authority's Customer Services Manager said,

People of all ages are always keen to learn where their water comes from and the processes it goes through before it arrives in their taps at home. An understanding of the water treatment process is useful, as many people take the supply of clean, wholesome water for granted.

We receive many comments about the age of the works, which were built in 1934 and are now nearly 70 years old, and public interest in the progress of plans for the new Water Treatment Works for Douglas is certainly on the increase.
