Non-Residential Water Usage

Water Conservation Management Plan (WCMP)

Western Downs Regional Council is committed to water conservation, and as such is asking all non-residential water users to conserve their water usage to help sustain supplies.

It is requested that all businesses and community organisations (CO’s) improve water efficiency and conserve water consumption without jeopardising economic production and employment.

If available, please make use of alternative water sources and recycle water if viable.

To assist businesses and CO’s with monitoring water usage patterns, identifying possible water savings and implementing water saving actions Council has developed a Water Conservation Plan.

A Water Conservation Plan is designed to ensure Non-Residential Users are already following industry best practice in water efficiency or alternatively demonstrate how the business is planning on becoming more water efficient.

Under Council’s Drought Management Plan, particular users are required to submit a Water Conservation Plan to continue using town water supplies during times of restrictions.

Through the use of the Water Conservation Management Plan, Council and your business can help reduce the demand placed on water supplies and encourage water efficient best practises for your business; therefore offering a fiscal benefit to your business. Thank you for taking the time to complete your plan.

Once completed, please send to Council via:
