How You Can Help

Every resident in Tamworth can help with water conservation. It’s important to observe water restrictions when they’re in effect. For example, you can have shorter showers, water gardens in the evening and make sure you turn off taps completely. However, the most effective water conservation measure can be put in place long before water restrictions are necessary.

As we learned in “The Home” section, we can reduce our water use by installing water saving devices such asĀ  aerators on taps, grey-water systems, water tanks and drip irrigation. We can also reduce our outdoor water use with shade, alternate ground-covers and drought resistant native plants.
