Let's make every drop count this summer

While our water storage dams are looking reasonably OK, we all still need to do our bit to look after the water we have. We're urging everyone to make every drop count when and where possible. Saving water can be as easy as washing your car on the lawn, using a trigger nozzle on your hose and not letting it run wild, and adding mulch to your garden so you keep the moisture in. It’s not about making big sacrifices – it’s about throwing out old habits and replacing them with ones that put less strain on this precious resource. We don’t want you to stop using water, we just want you to think before you turn the tap on.

Gardens – big or small - are the area where huge amounts of water are used. In fact, 25-50 per cent of a household’s water use is outdoors. Introducing water efficient tips and tricks will ensure your garden stays lush and your water bill doesn’t balloon over the drier months. Why not take some time over the holiday period and look into whether a rain tank might be a good option for you and your household. You can find out more here.

Water looks after us, so let's look after water and make every drop count.
