Small businesses in the Hunter are being encouraged to play their part in the
region’s water conservation efforts ahead of Level 2 water restrictions, which come
into effect next week.
Small Business Minister Damien Tudehope today visited Newcastle to meet with
small business and discuss their water-saving measures.
Level 1 restrictions were introduced in the Hunter in September, with Hunter Water partnering with businesses to achieve more than 420 million litres of water savings – the equivalent of 168 Olympic swimming pools – by finding and fixing leaks on their properties.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said the levels of the
region’s dams had fallen to their lowest in 40 years.
Hunter Water has a range of water saving resources to help small businesses,
including an online template. For more information visit,
