Queensland sites support Engineering Aid
From 2013 Queensland sites will support Engineering Aid Australia (EAA), a charitable organisation whose aim is to encourage Indigenous young Australians to consider a career as a professional engineer.EAA conducts two annual summer schools (to date the summer schools have been conducted in association with the Engineering Faculties of University of New South Wales, Newcastle University, Curtin University and the University of Sydney).
Veolia Water's donation goes towards the sponsorship of an indigenous student from Queensland to attend the EAA summer courses. Veolia Water is also discussing further opportunities to expand our involvement including visits to our operational sites and mentoring.

Western Corridor Recycled Water Project - The South East Queensland Healthy Waterways Awards
Veolia Water sponsors the Education Award at the annual Healthy Waterways Awards in south east Queensland.
These awards recognise and celebrate the achievements made by organisations and individuals to improve the health of South East Queensland's waterways. Veolia Water operates both the Gold Coast Desalination Plant and is the Scheme Operator for the Western Corridor Recycled Water Project both within this region of Queensland.
As a sponsor Veolia Water recognises and celebrates the achievements made by students, teachers and organisations to improve the health of south east Queensland's waterways and educate the community about the environment - a vital concern for our activities in south east Queensland. Veolia Water has previously sponsored the Education Award, and in 2013 will sponsor a new Indigenous Award which celebrates Indigenous groups and individuals who are actively working to protect our waterways through community consultation and by reinstating cultural, historical and environmental values within the community.
Gold Coast Desalination Plant - Tugun Jets Football Club and the Tugun Surf Life Saving Club
In partnership with client Seqwater, Veolia Water is supporting the Tugun Jets Football Club as part of a joint community support program. The team launched its 2010 season with much needed new equipment and sporting gear to replace the old equipment, some up to 10 years old.
Veolia Water and Seqwater have also jointly supported the Tugun Surf Life Saving Club, which has been keeping Tugun Beach safe for swimmers since 1925, to purchase a new surf rescue boat.
Veolia Water operates and maintains the Gold Coast Desalination Plant on Queensland's Gold Coast on behalf of client Seqwater. The plant is situated next to the grounds of the Tugun Jets Football Club.
