Save water and energy at work

Save water, save money

Council offers free installations of certain water saving devices for businesses, including hose spray guns, pre-rinse spray gun heads, tap flow restrictors and showerheads.

You are eligible for the program if:

  1. you are a business or organisation located in the Eurobodalla Shire
  2. the property is supplied by Council's mains water.

The program does not apply to new buildings or renovations, and these free devices are to replace existing equipment with higher flow characteristics.

Read the Expression of Interest form for details about the program, including terms and conditions:
