Supporting schools to stop leaks

We’re throwing our support behind local schools that sign up to the award-winning Victorian Schools Water Efficiency Program (SWEP).

SWEP provides water meter data-loggers and an online monitoring dashboard, enabling schools to track their water usage and detect leaks.

With the Victorian Government funding the first year of the three-year program, we’re now covering the costs of years 2 and 3.

Water leaks are common in schools, resulting in high water losses and high water bills. Early detection is vital to saving water and money.

35 schools our region are already signed up to SWEP. Since 2012, they have saved and 457 million litres of water and $1.23 million.

SWEP supports Barwon Waters vision for leading regional prosperity, promoting sustainable water use and zero waste in our community.
