Water saving stories

Are you water smart? Have you made changes in your home, garden, school or workplace that are helping to save Canberra’s precious water supply? Would you like to share your water smart story to help others to save water?

Being water smart is something everyone in the community can do, and this page showcases how ACT residents, businesses, schools and community organisations have introduced water-saving measures.

If you or your organisation is water smart, you are invited to email a brief description of your story to ACTSmart@act.gov.au with some photographs if you have them. A selection of stories will be featured on this website.
