Saving water is a great way to reduce your water bill and help preserve our most precious natural resource.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's water conservation measures are simple and practical ways for residents to lessen the impact on our drinking water supplies and the environment. Other changes that reduce annual water consumption include retrofitting existing houses with water efficient products, compliance with BASIX water efficiency requirements for new and renovated houses and dual reticulation in suitable new development areas.
