Let's make every drop count
Did you know that the typical Brimbank home uses 159L/person/day? Did you know that Permanent Water Use Rules have been in place since 2011? 155 litres is the maximum amount of water each of us should try to use each day.  Residential water use makes up 65 per cent of Melbourne’s water use, with showering making up 31 per cent of the water we use at home.
 
Let’s make every drop count this summer and limit our water use by shaving a minute off our shower and brushing our teeth with the tap off. For more water saving hints check out our Water Management- What you can do webpage or City West Water’s Saving Water webpage today!
