Why we acted

We’ve learnt that through good leadership and a set of achievable goals water savings can happen.

Mick Kennedy, Park Manager

We received a large water bill that wasn’t consistent with previous ones and this led us to investigate the sites water use in more detail, and the findings of our investigation was a catalyst for the introduction of regular monitoring of water use on a daily basis.

How we did it

The caravan park used 50,159 kilolitres in 2007–08 and almost halved this to 27,385 kilolitres in 2010–11.

We achieved water savings through:

  • reading meters on a daily basis
  • using a leak detection company to locate leaks
  • using the water use benchmark guide to identify areas around the park to target for water efficiency management
  • installation of water sub meters around the park to provide improved information about water use levels and helping with early detection of plumbing leaks
  • replacement of plumbing fittings in showers with water efficient models 
  • replacing the existing pipes with new pipework.
