Water Conservation

Water is a precious resource and water conservation encompasses strategies and activities to manage freshwater as a sustainable resource.

Over recent years droughts and inefficient capture and distribution systems have presented challenges in how we conserve water to meet current and future demand. Initiatives to address water conservation within the home include using less water e.g. taking showers and not baths, aerated taps and shower heads, using dishwater  economy/full load settings, dual flush toilets and reusing grey water.
