WATER SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM TO FLOW INTO TAMWORTH CLASSROOMS

Tamworth is aiming to raise a generation of smarter water-users.

It’s National Water Week, and Tamworth Regional Council has developed a program that will be taught in schools across the city to show how precious water is.

40 per cent of the region’s residential water is used outside, and the multi-media education tool aims to reduce this.

“We don’t know when our next lot of substantial rainfall is coming, so we really need to use our water sustainably, be as smart as we possibly can with our water, and use just enough water to get the job done and no more.”
