Water Efficiency to Reduce Overall Residential and Non-Residential Water Use
A long term, sustained focus on using less water is central to living with less rainfall and becoming climate resilient.
Benefits of using less water:
It’s better for the environment. Using less water minimises the amount of groundwater we have to extract and our energy use associated treating this water and pumping.
It defers the costs of investing in new water sources and infrastructure and the price increases which come with this.
