Saving water

To help secure future water supplies, our community must work together to conserve water.

Barwon Water offers a range of tailored water saving solutions to help our customers save water wherever possible.

Mark Gee, a Barwon Water plumbing contractor, installs a low-flow showerhead as part of a water saving initiative.

Saving water will always be a core component of our integrated water management program.

By using less water, we are able to better distribute what is already a scarce resource for future generations.



A community of water savers

Our customers demonstrated incredible water saving discipline over the course of staged water restrictions.

Now, with water restrictions lifted, our water-wise behaviours continue. 

In 1980, our serviced population was 140,000. Today it is more than 290,000. Thanks to a community of water savers, annual water consumption in Geelong is actually less today than it was more than 20 years ago!
