NT Thunder visit Kintore

12 July 2012

NT Thunder players continue their role as water conservation ambassadors for Power and Water Corporation in NT remote communities with their magical blend of footy clinics and educational sessions.

Commercial Operations Manager Matthew Argus and two Alice Springs players Jai Pumphrey and Jayden Prior met with children in Kintore this week and spoke to them about the importance of water and simple measures to reduce water wastage.

The squad has been helping promote water conservation with visits to remote communities as part of a sponsorship arrangement with Power and Water.

Kids of all ages joined a group session of learning about where water comes from, how it is tested and how it gets from under the ground all the way through to the taps in a house.

Power and Water expects great things from this partnership, with the players’ profiles contributing to awareness of the importance of taking simple measures to reduce water use.

Expanding populations and economic growth in remote communities has seen demand for water and electricity grow considerably. We provide services to over 30 000 people in 72 Growth Towns, communities and outstations. It is important to continue to work in water and energy conservation and we plan to visit more remote communities with players from the NT Thunder team in the near future.
