Using water wisely
The Victorian Government works with partners, industry and the community to ensure we make the best use of our precious water supplies.
Alternative water sources such as rainwater, stormwater and recycled water are actively used within our homes, businesses, schools and communities. At the same time, many water efficient products, services and programs exist to help Victorians save on water and energy costs, including:
- Permanent water saving (use) rules encourage common sense water use even when water restrictions are not in place.
- Local water corporations have valuable information on how you can collect and use rainwater from your roof to use throughout your home and garden instead of tap water.
