By using our water more efficiently, it means that we can save our drinking water for drinking.
Council is currently using sub surface irrigation at some sports fields in addition to harvesting storm water at four separate sporting fields across the Shoalhaven with more schemes planned in the future in order to use our water more efficiently.
Likewise, the NSW Government also has a number of initiatives to ensure our ongoing water supply. For more information on what the NSW Government is doing to conserve our water, please visit the Water For Life
