Water is precious, it belongs to all of us!
Here in the Hunter we have been good at water conservation, but recently our water usage has been increasing. We each use on average 191 litres per day, this is more than two buckets per day above the national average*.
We can all work together to protect our drinking water by playing our part with how we use it. This will help guide decisions about our water future.
* Nine Major Australian Water Utilities (50,000+ customers) have consistently reported residential consumption less than or equal to this. This includes the Central Coast Council (based on averages from Gosford and Wyong), Queensland Urban Utilities, Logan City Council and various Victorian utilities.
