Find 7 ways to save for 7 days
TAKE THE 7 DAY CHALLENGE
Wednesday 23 October - Today's tip is:
In the laundry, put on full loads of washing only and collect the grey water to water your plants!
Tuesday 22 October - Tip: Check your home (inside and out) and fix any leaking taps - 1 tap can waste a litre of water each day.
Monday 21 Oct - Tip: Put a bucket in your shower, and use the water you collect to water indoor or outdoor plants!
National Water Week runs from 21 - 27 October, and we're asking you to rethink your personal water use as the region adopts water restrictions through one of the east coast’s driest years on record.
On the MidCoast we are very fortunate to have a clean and overall reliable source of water that supplies our communities, and we will celebrate that with some free community events during Water Week once again this year.
However, there’s no escaping that we are in the midst of a prolonged drought in NSW, and water restrictions are in force here on the MidCoast, so our focus this year is very firmly on reducing our water use and conserving this precious resource.
The challenge is to find a way to reduce your household or personal water use every day during Water Week - to find 7 ways for 7 days. There's plenty of practical tips on the tabs below to help you save water - take a peek and take up the challenge!
It won’t be all work and no play - there are events to celebrate Water Week across the MidCoast too - visit the Bootawa Water Treatment Plant, or meet Whizzy the Waterdrop as he tours MidCoast Libraries. Check out the information below for bookings and details.
