Learn to save water with National Water Week

IF you want to learn more about saving our most precious resource, tap into the events bubbling away during National Water Week.

The community awareness campaign runs until Saturday.

“Climate change and drought is a constant reminder that we must try to conserve water in every way we can,” Coffs Harbour Mayor Cr Keith Rhoades said.

“Our community is very water conscious, but Water Week is a good time to stop and take a fresh look at how we all use water.”

Activities include:

• Coffs Harbour Water will present schools which have been officially recognised as waterwise with a distinctive new sign for their school entrance.

• Coffs Harbour Water is giving away a $1400, four and a half-star rated, Bosch front-loading washing machine to one lucky resident connected to town water. The lucky winner will save around 90 litres of water per wash compared to a top-loading washing machine.

• Take a look at the new WaterWise garden in the North Coast Regional Botanic Garden on Friday at 10am.
