Water looks after us, so let's look after water.

Despite our recent rainfall which has done wonders for our water storage dams, we all still need to do our bit to look after the water we have. We're urging everyone to introduce some water efficient habits when and where possible. Saving water can be as easy as reducing your shower time to four minutes, turning the tap off while you soap your hands or brush your teeth, and reusing water on from indoors on your garden. 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. If you're yet to look into whether a rain tank might be a good option for you and your household, you can find out more here.

While the water levels in our dams are looking good, our team is constantly working hard on projects that increase the availability of water from other sources. We love our dams, but we don’t want to rely on them.
