Melbourne’s water supplies are limited and drought conditions over the past five years have meant that restrictions are currently in force. Water consumption per person in Melbourne has almost doubled over the past 100 years and this increase is not sustainable.
Currently, an average Melbourne household uses about 240,000 litres of water per year. This averages out at a little over 657 litres per day or five average-sized swimming pools.
There are a number of ways in which we can reduce water use within our homes and gardens.
Did you know that you could be rewarded for buying and installing 'water smart' products in your home? The Victorian Government has a number of rebates available to residents to provide them with the chance to make water and money savings inside the home.
