Water Usage and Savings in Aquatic Facilities

Water Usage and Savings in Aquatic Facilities
August 18, 2010

Aquatics & Recreation Victoria has released an industry Best Practice Guide to encourage efficient and cost-effective water use in aquatic and recreation facilities throughout the State.

Backed by a Round 5 Smart Water Fund grant, Aquatics & Recreation Victoria investigated water usage within aquatic and recreation facilities to develop the guide. It identifies five strategic directions/key findings aimed at both minimising barriers to actions and encouraging a broader understanding and adoption of water efficient practices.

Under each strategic direction, specific actions were recommended to move the industry closer toward water-use efficiency.

The Smart Water Fund is a joint initiative of Melbourneâs water businesses - City West Water, South East Water, Yarra Valley Water and Melbourne Water â together with the Victorian Government. Established in 2002, the Smart Water Fund invests in innovative water conservation, water recycling and biosolids management solutions throughout metropolitan and regional urban Victoria.

The Leisure Institute of Western Australia (LIWA Aquatics) is believed to have received funding from Western Australiaâs Water Corporation for a series of water management and efficiency initiatives at aquatic facilities in WA.
