Hawkesbury Central Library National Science Week 2018 event: Dr Ian Wright on the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system

EVER wonder what happens when you flush the loo or wash the clothes and how much of this water waste makes its way into our river systems?

Join Dr Ian Wright at Hawkesbury Central Library during Sydney Science Festival for a free talk on the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system - Sydney’s water supply and also the recipient of pollution and human waste.

Dr Wright is an expert in water conservation based at the School of Science and Health at Western Sydney University.

In his session, titled Protecting our Hawkesbury-Nepean River System, he will explain how huge quantities of effluent from rapidly-increasing human population are entering our river systems every day.

If these rivers are our lifeblood for food, agriculture, and our quality of life in the Hawkesbury, what does the future for Hawkesbury-Nepean River system look like - and for the community?

The event will take place on Tuesday, August 14 from 6-7pm at the Library, at 300 George Street, Windsor. 

Tickets are free but bookings are essential at www.hawkesburylibrary.eventbrite.com or call 4560 4460.
