Water is precious, and with around 40 per cent of household water going to our bathrooms, it's important to be more mindful of how we're using it.
Let's Love Water together
Our weather is unpredictable which makes saving water more important than ever. Little habits make big changes and can help keep our dams fuller for longer.
Find out ways you can save bucket loads of water
Our beautiful Hunter region also comes with very high temperatures over summer and dry periods throughout the year. But this doesn’t mean our gardens can’t be kept healthy and flourishing, without using excess water!
Rainwater tanks are a great way to save bucket loads of water which can be used in your garden, toilet, and laundry.
