What makes drinking water safe?

This manual is designed for teachers working with students on water safety in their communities. It aims to support student learning around what water safety is, and the connection between disease and unsafe water. It is designed to complement existing school curriculum in science and health.

The manual is built around three modules, which cover the importance of clean drinking water, where drinking water comes from, and how to make water safe. Each module contains engaging activities, such as water quality testing and river field trips.
