Salisbury Council

Salisbury Council are producing bottles of purified stormwater for the community to sample, sourced from Salisbury wetlands on the northern Adelaide plains. Marketed as 'Recharge', it has met health standards so far but requires more testing before it can go to market and become a valuable, energy efficient resource for the region. A new Cooling Tower Water Efficiency Calculator (CTWEC) has been launched to provide businesses with an ongoing indication of the water efficiency of their cooling tower relative to its operational capabilities at different times of the year.

Councils' Water Saving Measures Pay Off

NSW councils are on their way to saving 10,000 mega litres of water by July 2010 thanks to a $22m joint initiative of the Local Government and Shires Associations of NSW (LGSA) and the NSW Water Directorate. The Water Loss Management Program, which is also partly funded by the Federal Government's Water Smart Australia Program, encourages local water utilities to adopt innovative and practical water-saving solutions. The WATER FOOTPRINT network was launched at the Corporate Water Footprint Conference, in London (UK). The Network aims to develop and apply the 'Water Footprint' to support the transition to sustainable and equitable water use and management globally, including how much intrinsic water is locked up in meat, grain and other foodstuffs produced by humans.
