Central Highlands Water has encouraged its customers to get involved in a water efficiency program.

The state government’s Target Your Water Use campaign is a voluntary program designed to help people use their water wisely.

The program takes a longer-term view of water usage habits in the Central Highlands region, while giving residents better access to information to make informed decisions about their water use.

 “Victorians living in rural and regional areas understand all too well the pressures of drought and water security. Conditions can change quickly and we need to be preparing for drier conditions now,” Bellarine MP Lisa Neville said.

“This program will help residents and business owners play their part in tackling those challenges, allowing them to make informed decisions about their water use by delivering new tools like comparative water use data.”
