Protecting Our Water Quality

Not only is it important to reduce our water consumption, we must also try to conserve our water quality. If we all follow a few simple tips, we can help keep our wastewater clean and save on expensive treatment processes.

  • Try to use phosphate-free and biodegradable detergents
  • Try to use unbleached toilet paper
  • Donít pour fats and oils down the kitchen sink or outside drain Ė wipe pots and pans with a paper towel and put it in the bin instead.
  • Donít wash food scraps down the sink Ė put them in the compost instead.
  • Donít pour water from washed paint brushes down the drain
  • Donít use your toilet as rubbish bin Ėnever flush cotton tips, nappies or other non- biodegradable products down the toilet.
  • Try to minimise the use of garden pesticides and fertilisers
  • Donít wash leaves, dirt or oil down street gutters or backyard drains - sweep the gutters and keep them clean.
