Geography – Water Management @ Penrith Lakes (Half-Day Program) | Stage 5 | HSIE

This excursion addresses outcomes from the NSW Geography Syllabus.

Focus – Issues in Australian Environments

This unique and highly engaging program allows students to learn about stormwater management methods used at Penrith Lakes Scheme. Students collect data first hand using a variety of water testing equipment and learn to understand the overall importance of these to the maintenance of high quality water. As a part of the day students also visit a new development site based on ‘Water Sensitive Urban Design’ principles where stormwater treatment is embedded within the facilities and it is treated as a valuable resource. Students are guaranteed to be involved in a number of engaging and hands on experiences during the course of the day through which students will further develop their geography knowledge and understanding, field work and group work skills. (Please note: This half day excursion is usually combined with a visit to Warragamba Dam but water testing can only be done in the TWO hour program).
