Saving water

Water is a precious resource and needs to be used wisely to make sure Eurobodalla Shire continues to have a safe and clean water supply.

Some simple things you can do to save water include: checking your water meter to see if you have any leaks; installing flow restrictors to existing taps and showers, which you can get for free through our showerhead exchange program, and choosing water efficiency rated appliances and fittings when you are upgrading or replacing old ones.
