Let’s learn about the work people at Higashihiroshima City Waterworks Bureau do.

 
The water supply system lets us secure safe, potable water. The water supply system is protected by people working at Higashihiroshima City Waterworks Bureau. We studied what the Waterworks Bureau does to protect water.
 
【 Comment from a worker at Higashihiroshima City Waterworks Bureau 】
We at the Waterworks Bureau do various things to provide people with safe, potable water. We purify water at the city’s water purification plants, examine the water quality, and inspect water meters. We also change and clean old water pipes.
It is important to make tap water available at all times. When there is dry weather in summer, we promote planned water use and saving to keep from running out of water.
Please use water carefully.
