One of Albany's biggest water users has slashed water use by 60%, saving 6.8 million litres annually.

How can you do this?
An additional benefit of water efficiency for us is the saving time and money spent cleaning processing equipment, because the recycled boiler water we use produces much less scale.
We became a part of the Water Efficiency Management Plan program in 2006 which showed us that our water use was very high. This led us to implement some innovative water efficiency measures.
Assess your use
We have achieved our water saving through improvements and innovations in recycling and collecting rain water from the huge roof areas of the building. We run a wastewater treatment plant that is a mini version of Water Corporation’s Albany treatment plant.
We now recycle 6.8 million litres of water per year. Only a minimal amount of water goes through the cooling towers where most water loss occurs through evaporation.
The next step for us is to focus on other water efficiency practices and continually improving their work practices.
