Take action, make small changes

We need to make sure we’ll continue to have water for the future and to look after the environment.

We are promising to reduce water lost through leaks by 15%, by replacing 48 km of pipes and investing in a smart network by 2025. We can all reduce the amount of water we use, just by making small changes.

We pledge:
          to reduce leakage by 15%

Ways to reduce your water use

▶️ Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth

▶️ Shorten your shower Graphic stating "shorten your shower" Save just under one bucket (9 litres) per minute, if you have a shorter shower and remember, running the shower before you step in also wastes water.

Order a free shower timer.

▶️ Get a water meterGraphic stating "get a meter"

If you haven't got a water meter, the switch is easy and you can track your water use to find out how you use the most water and spot leaks on your pipes easily.
