Water Consumption

Water demand from customers also has a major influence on our dam levels. With the move to Extreme Water Restrictions the new target rate of consumption is 120 litres per person per day. Currently, on average, residents are using far more than this target amount and for some towns it will require almost a 50% reduction in average use.

What can I do?

We can all contribute to saving water. We have lots of tips and tools available online to be more water efficient, either by following the Waterwise behaviours and choosing water efficient appliances when upgrading household items. Fixing leaks around the house is another way to save water and on your bills.  

Together we can make a big difference in conserving our most precious resource.

Below is a table showing average water use in litres for residential areas based on a consumption rate of 2.3 persons per household.
