Government Services

Water usage in Government facilities varies widely however Defence, Corrective Services and other specialist operational facilities such as Mounted Police Stable Yards use large volumes of water in the maintenance and cleaning of amenities and the accommodation of large populations. These facilities also have large roof and hardstand areas such as car parks and recreational areas which provide opportunities for rainwater and stormwater harvesting.

High water uses suitable for alternative water supply at Government facilities include:

 Landscape irrigation;

Cooling tower make-up water;

Facility and vehicle wash;

Toilet flushing; and
