Water consumption reduction and reuse initiatives are a focus in our water management strategies as we work towards being self sufficient in water use. Water is a precious natural resource that should not be wasted. Australia can suffer from long drought periods that have negative environmental, social and economic impacts. UOW operations include a range of activities that impact on the amount of water consumed including sports field maintenance, provision of food services, research and general campus use. Growth and climatic factors pose a challenge to reduce water consumption.
Although water restrictions have eased in the Illawarra and Sydney we should remain water wise
