Saving Water

After a relatively wet and humid summer, the importance of conserving water may have slipped off the radar for some.  But hopefully years of drought have imprinted on people across our region the tremendous importance of using water as efficiently as possible no matter what the weather.  

Information about saving water

Be sure to borrow our DIY Home Sustainability Guide and library kit from your local library.  It includes lots of practical tips about saving water in your home.  These kits are available from libraries across our project region.

The Australian Government’s Living Greener has lots of information about saving water, including information about things like general water efficiency in the home and garden, water efficient appliances, rainwater tanks and greywater systems.

The Savewater program is a one-stop-shop of information about how to save water at home, in the garden at at work.

Make sure that you buy water efficient appliances and fittings by checking the Water Rating  label.

Check the Green Plumbers website to find out if there is a registered green plumber in your part of our region.

If you are thinking of installing a greywater  system your should first read the NSW Guidelines for Greywater Reuse in Sewered, Single Household Residential Premises.
