Children watering the garden

The start of the new year – and the warm Summer weather - is the perfect time to make a commitment to reduce your household water usage.

Cutting back on your water consumption won’t just save water, it also saves energy, money and the environment.
Climate change and population growth continue to pose a serious risk to our water security – with our catchments and storages set to again experience dry periods in the future.    

Target 155 is a program that encourages Melbourne households to cut back to 155 litres per person per day – this is only 6 litres less than the average residential water use per person across Melbourne in 2016/17.   

We can all reach Target 155. Just by choosing modern, high quality water efficient technologies and making some small changes in behaviour you can make a big difference to the amount of water your household uses every day.  

Find some great ways to reach Target 155 in your home
