How to be waterwise

Kids playing with water pump

Bendigo is an especially dry area with limited rainfall. We all need to conserve water and use it wisely in our homes, schools and businesses.

There are many ways you can maximise water efficiency – by using water saving practices, and there are many devices and products available that are designed to help minimise water wastage.

Tailoring your garden to suit Bendigo’s dry climate means your garden will thrive in local conditions and use less water. Find out more about In the Garden.
