Saving Water

We are committed to water efficiency and appreciate our customers’ efforts to use water wisely. Here is some more information and ideas to help you save water and money.

Saving Rules

Permanent Water Saving Rules (PWSR) are a set of five common sense water rules that are in place at all times when water restrictions are not in force.

> Target Your Water Use

Target Your Water Use is a Victorian government voluntary water efficiency program for regional Victorian householders to actively encourage the efficient use of our precious water.

Water restrictions for urban water users can vary from Stage 1 (mild) to Stage 4 (severe). Water restrictions do not apply to greywater, tank water, bore water, recycled water or alternative water sources.

Swapping your old showerhead is one of the easiest ways to reduce water consumption in your home. All you need to do is bring a copy of your water account and your old showerhead to our office and we will provide you with a new water saving model.

Australia’s Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme requires certain products to be registered and labelled with their water efficiency.
