A sustainable water community
Cooranbong local water centre
Construction has begun on the new local sustainable water centre - Cooranbong Water. This sustainable Australian-leading Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) system will provide recycled water for the Watagan Park community, preserving precious drinking water, preventing ocean outfall and creating a new secure water supply. The network utilises 21st-century water infrastructure.
Drinking Water Stage 1 Restrictions are now in place and apply to you.
You can find out more here: https://hunterwater.com.au/Save-Water/Water-Restrictions/Water-Restrictions.aspxAlso, at Flow, we believe that our customers should be Waterwise even when they have access to recycled water.
Below we recommend some tips to ensure you are Waterwise with recycled water as summer kicks in.
- Check your taps for leaks and replace the washers as soon as they begin to drip.
- Using the half flash button on a dual flush toilet will save you up to five litres per flush. You could end up saving thousands of litres per year.
- Avoid watering your garden etc. between 10 am and 4 pm when evaporation is high. Maybe also use a watering can or a trigger nozzle on a hose, so you hit the areas that need it.
- You can add compost to your garden to help the soil store water, which will save you watering the garden regularly.
Recycled water must not be used in swimming pools or spas.
This is not an approved use for recycled water and owners of pools and spas are responsible for ensuring that only drinking water is used for this purpose
