School case study

Under the guidance of their Carbon Neutral Project Officer, the school implemented an energy, gas and water monitoring system which identified an irrigation fault that was contributing to an increase in water use.

Why we acted


Unable to find a reason for a gradual but persistent increase in water use over a 5 month period, our Carbon Neutral Project Officer, Kathy, convinced the school it was time to install an energy, gas and water monitoring system.

Assess your use

How we did it

We installed several sub-meters, which help us monitor water use around the school. When we see a spike in water use on the building monitoring system, we can check the sub-meters to quickly identify and isolate the problem.


  • Waterless urinals
  • WELS 4 star dual flush toilets


  • Reducing lawn area
  • Choosing native plants

Behaviour change

Establishing a culture of sustainability among staff and students.

What we are doing now

Our next initiative is to fit flow restricting devices to taps used for hand washing, as a cheap way to save water.
